From the full collection, fifty-one stories suitable for children have been selected. Among these are famous tales as well as many delightful ones not usually included in children's volumes. Where the Hunt wording is too stilted, the text of the
Hausmarchen itself has been followed. The very long sentences have been subdivided. While that quaint old-fashioned translation, illustrated with woodcuts by Wehnert, has contributed its bit of folk phraseology. The Editor's desire is to restore to the children as large a collection as possible of Grimm's Fairy Tales unmutilated in their literary perfection.
The illustrations are by the well-kxiovn Dutch artist, Mrs. Rie Cramer. Some of Rie Cramer's other fairy tale pictures published in England, are said by admiring critics there, to be very charming, of exceptional merit, and to have high artistic
merit of their own.
