Rate this:
Many of the tales, collected from oral sources, were published for the very first time in the original edition. A few of the tales are already known; young readers will be sure to recognise the familiar 'Bremen Town Musician' in the Pakistani tale 'Four Friends', from which scholars believe the Grimms' version is derived. The striking illustrations are by Jan Fairservis, who lived in Pakistan for several years. The authors and artist offer a charming invitation to the colourful folklore of an intriguing culture.
