Fairy Tales from the Brothers Grimm by Philip Pullman

Once upon a time: Pullman wrote the best-selling fantasy trilogy His Dark Materials; the first book, The Golden Compass, became a movie starring Nicole Kidman and Daniel Craig. Plot notes: In assembling and retelling these 50 famous stories for their 200th anniversary, Pullman is true to the originals — but a touch more polished. You're never too old: Revisit classics like Rumpelstiltskin and Snow White, and discover previously passed over gems like Hans My Hedgehog.
