Rediscover the magic and wonder of the original Grimm Tales, retold by master-storyteller Philip Pullman. You'll meet familiar characters--Little Red Riding Hood, Hansel and Gretel--and some unexpected ones too, such as Hans-My-Hedgehog and the remarkable Thousandfurs. Full of deliciously dark twists and turns, these tales come to life in all their glittering, macabre brilliance.
