Generations of children have listened with bated breath to the tales of Cinderella, Snow White and The Bremen Town Musicians.

Where did they come from, these ancient tales of Princes and Princesses, of giants and dwarfs and dragons and enchanted castles which all children love and which have taken so strong a hold upon the human imagination? Many of them go back a thousand years or more and can be found among the folk tales of many lands.

All of us, the children of yesterday and the children of today, owe a deep debt of gratitude to the brothers Grimm, Jacob and Wilhelm, who a century ago began the patient collection of these timeless tales from many sources.

In preparing this new edition of Grimms' Fairy Tales, the aim of the publishers has been to present with the help of recognized authorities in children's literature the best collection available. The translations by Lucy Crane, Mrs. Edgar Lucas and M. Edwardes are endorsed by librarians everywhere.

Delightfully illustrated in color and in black and white, exclusively for THE ILLUSTRATED JUNIOR LIBRARY.
