Rebekah from Bekahcubed is hosting this month's book club read and discussion and she selected The Complete Grimm's Fairy Tales
for us to read. Below are her introductory thoughts:
Since I am familiar with Hans Christian Anderson's original tales, I've selected a less familiar collection of originals for this month's Reading to Know Book Club - Grimms' Fairy Tales (link to Wikipedia).
The Complete Grimm's Fairy Tales include 200 separate tales - familiar tales such as Rapunzel, Hansel and Gretel, and Little Red Riding Hood, but also much less familiar ones. Since the volumes are rather large, I don't expect that many of us will read them in their entirety (I’m going to try but to give myself plenty of grace if I don’t end up doing so!). So this challenge will be to read one or more of the Grimm brothers' original fairy tales and to write about them so we all can learn a bit more about the tales behind the children's storybook versions.
Let us know in the comment section if you plan to read along! We'd love to hear from you.
