A few times a week, over my lunch break, I will record, edit, and publish one of the original 250 fairy tales collected by the Brothers Grimm and translated to English by Dr. Jack Zipes.
 

All stories read by Eric Wagoner from The Complete Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm, translated by Jack Zipes (used with permission).
