UK Kirkus Review »
The fantastically gruesome classic tales from the German Brothers Grimm are brought wonderfully to life by Rackham's haunting illustrations. No one will ever forget the story of 'Fitcher's Bird' and 'Clever Elsie' and the warnings they convey. Beware - these are not for the faint-hearted. (7 yrs +) (Kirkus UK)
