Grimms' Fairy Tales

Grimms' Fairy Tales

‘Once upon a time...’ Once upon a time there was a book, and inside the book were princes who had been turned into frogs or ferocious beasts, princesses so beautiful they astonished the sun, faithful sweethearts and evil stepmothers, giants taller than mountains and a boy no bigger than your thumb, houses made of bread and cake and birds made of gold - in fact, all manner of mysterious, monstrous and magical things. The book is in your hands. Read it happily ever after. Includes exclusive material: In the Backstory you can learn to make your own gingerbread!
