A Twist in the Tail Thursdays features all this and more!

It's no secret that I love fairy tales. Or that I collect multiple versions of the classic tales.

When I heard that there was going to be a new rendition of tales from the Brothers Grimm I was intrigued, even more so when I realized that the art would be done by talented illustrator Gris Grimly. His macabre style is PERFECT for these creepy fairy tales! (And let's face it...many fairy tales ARE creepy. Disney just cleans them up...a lot! So a lot of people don't realize this...)

Looking at that cover, you already KNOW this is a collection darker tales. I don't think I'd give it to a young child, especially if he or she scares easily. But older elementary school children or middle schoolers? Sure, GAME ON!!!

The tales are very much the original stories, so there isn't anything new on that front. It's really all about the artwork!!!

In the following video, you'll see glimpses of some of the art, so you can judge if it will be appropriate or not for the child in your life. Or even for yourself! Gris Grimly's watercolor art is timeless and SO gorgeous...as is this behemoth of a book!

The Brothers Grimm’s enduring fairy tales are brought to life for a new generation of readers in their original, uncut, uncensored form, in a lavish new edition by the master of the gothic macabre—bestselling illustrator Gris Grimly.


The name alone is enough to call to mind any number of the timeless fairy tales collected by brothers Jacob and Wilhelm in the early nineteenth century. These folktales have been told and retold in many forms for over two centuries, and while the particular mix of fantasy, adventure, and wonder that defined their seven-volume collection has endured, the terror, violence, and darkness of the original stories have often been lost in translation.

Enter Gris Grimly, the modern master of gothic horror, who has faithfully reproduced the original text of a selection of tales—including “Rapunzel,” “Hansel and Gretel,” and “Little Red-Cap”—and adorned them with his own inimitable artwork. The result is a Grimm collection unlike any other, set in a world that is whimsically sinister, darkly vivid, and completely unforgettable. Gris Grimly’s TALES FROM THE BROTHERS GRIMM is the definitive illustrated compendium of these classic stories for a new generation of readers.
