Audible Editor Reviews

Joanna Daniel performs this collection of 25 of the greatest fairy tales from the Brothers Grimm. Translator Margaret Hunt is credited with bringing German folklore to the attention of English-speaking children, but in this audiobook, Joanna Daniel gets all the credit for a charming performance that adults will appreciate as much as their offspring. Tom Thumb, Snow White, Cinderella, and the Frog Prince all make appearances here, as well as some lesser-known characters like Dummling, Catherine and Frederick, and Mother Holle. All of them are both rendered delicately and enlivened by Daniel's winsome English accent.

    "More funny than "grimm" ."

    These were comical. I was a little disappointed, I thought they would resemble the fairytales of my youth put only a few of them did.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Fine for adults but difficult for kids, due to degree of accent and speed of speech.


    If you’ve listened to books by the authors before, how does this one compare?

    To difficult to understand for children not used to highly accented British accent
