This is a selection of fairy tales from the Brothers Grimm as retold by Philip Pullman. He doesn't add or change much, which for a collection like this is just right. It's an interesting range of tales from the standard Snow White, Cinderella, and Rapunzel to lesser known ones like the Juniper Tree. Pullman also adds his own interesting commentary and thoughts to the end of each tale. I appreciated that he didn't really embellish the tales themselves, but I enjoyed reading his thoughts on each tale and what he would change if the story were his.

Note: I read this as a free eARC from Netgalley
