Fairy Tales from the Brothers Grimm: A New English Version

Fairy Tales from the Brothers Grimm: A New English Version - Philip Pullman, Jacob Grimm Enchanting collection, some stories I knew from childhood, some stories I read as an adult in Europe, some stories that were new to me. Pullman's introduction is fun to read in itself. The stories as collected and told are lots of fun, and themes emerge, parallels to mythology become apparent, and intuitions that normally apply in dreams begin to make sense.
