First published by brothers Wilhelm & Jakob Grimm in 1812 as a collection of retold Germanic folk stories, this collection of such well-known fairytales as Rapunzel and Sleeping Beauty transports listeners to a realm where “Once upon a time” often ends up “happily ever after,” and where giants, princesses, kings, and fairies pursue power, find true love, have all sorts of magical adventures—and in the process reveal multifaceted truths about human nature.
