GRIMM’S HOUSEHOLD TALES
This new edition of Peake’s illustrated Houshold Tales by the Brothers Grimm was originally published in 1946 and this is the first time it has been made available since then with the original colour illustrations. Like the Grimms’ stories, Peake’s illustrations combine the comic and the sinister and evoke a strong sense of childhood fear and humour. Stories by Grimm remain popular to this day, and as well as some of the best-loved stories such as Sleeping Beauty, Rumpelstiltskin, Snow White and Cinderella, this books includes a number of less familiar tales. The beautiful new edition will be welcomed by Peake fans and children alike.
