Happy Birthday, Dear Wilhelm, Happy Birthday to You

Brothers Grimm.jpgFebruary 24th marks the 224th anniversary of the birth of German academic Wilhelm Grimm, who, along with his brother Jacob, is best known for gathering and publishing folk and fairy tales of his native land. Thanks to these brothers, we have come to know such characters as Rapunzel, Rumpelstiltskin and Hansel and Gretel. Revisiting these classic tales, adults may find themselves surprised by the gory details to be found in their pages. Among the many versions of the tales available at the Milwaukee Public Library are The Annotated Brothers Grimm and Grimms' Grimmest, in case you're interested in the unexpurgated versions.
