Grimm tales by Philip Pullman

gtI’ve always been a huge fan of both Philip Pullman and fairy tales,  so I was pretty excited to hear that his latest book is a retelling of a selection of the Grimm brothers’ stories.  
 
This is a very enjoyable collection with each tale lovingly retold by an author with huge skill and a passion for stories. The short and often humorous notes at the end of each story add a beautifully personal note to the collection.
 
This will be a great read for anyone who has never left behind the magic of fairy tales, but remember: the old stories are often dark, sexy and bloody.  These are not the Disney versions… and all the better for it.
