Renowned children s book author Wanda Gag presents these classic Grimm tales, accompanied by whimsical illustrations. Drawing on her peasant heritage and childlike sense of wonder, Gag translated the fairy tales in a uniquely American vernacular tongue. More Tales from Grimm contains over thirty more, including The Golden Key, The Seven Swabians, and The Wolf and the Fox, as well as almost one hundred illustrations. No other editions of Grimm s fairy tales for children can match Gag s richness of prose and the humor, beauty, and sheer magic of her pictorial interpretation. Best known for her Newbery Honor winner Millions of Cats, Wanda Gag (1893 1946) was a pioneer in children s book writing, integrating text and illustration. Born in New Ulm, Minnesota, she rose to international acclaim. In recognition of her artistry, she was posthumously awarded the 1958 Lewis Carroll Shelf Award for Millions of Cats and the 1977 Kerlan Award for her body of work."
