THE FAIRY STORIES and folk tales collected and published by the brothers Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm have been immensely popular and are now a firm part of our traditions. In all they published more than 200 tales but some are much better known than others and the collection presented here are probably among the best known and most popular. Sadly it seems that the brothers academic integrity could not stand up to the requirements of maintained popularity and even the needs of their political and national causes. Despite these problems I believe theses are still great stories if you just skip the occasional racism, stereotyping and prejudice.
