Introduction by Padraic Colum
Commentary by Joseph Campbell
This is the classic Pantheon edition of the Haus Marchen (“house stories”) collected by the Brothers Grimm. This collection has nurtured children’s imaginations in English-speaking Waldorf kindergartens and first grades throughout the world. The richness of imagery and the ultimate truth of the tales is a gift to every child fortunate enough to hear them told by a loved adult. It is also a gift to the adults who are able to share them with the children in their care. One of the few books that genuinely belongs on every home and schools “must have” list.
