Book Summary

Grimms American Fairy Tales

Welcome to a real Grimms house — a Grimm’s American fairy house. Inside each wall is a room, inside each room are cupboards and in every cupboard another fairy waits to tell you a tale. But be sure to take off your shoes before you enter. Because they love to play with your toes. Why? Because that’s what American fairies do, especially those with new stories to tell.

There are talking animals, ghosts, and families in disarray, dreams that aren’t dreams, and tales of revenge. There are happy endings that don’t always seem happy, sad endings that are satisfying, and twisted endings that will leave you with shivers. Whether the tale is about girls, or boys, or or moms or dads, or other funky relatives or neighbors or just people you wish you could meet, they will provide insights into the complexity of human nature that develop along the road. Because that’s what fairies are here for.

“The forest allows for enchantment and disenchantment, for it is a place where society’s conventions no longer hold true. It is the source of natural right, thus the starting place where social wrongs can be righted,” noted a Grimms’ scholar Jack Zipes. In this collection, because of the increased attention given to nature wanting to shrug off the human burden that causes climate change, we’re going to see a more modern attitude that Nature itself is alive. While Zipes noted that today’s modern world seems filled with enchanting ads that make promises, Nature never makes promises. Nature makes reality.

A former collection with many of these stories was called Grimms American Macabre, but you’re going to find new delights and unexpected thrills here, along with your old favorites (if you’d read that version).

This is a book for Grimm lovers, with stories for the young and young at heart.
