Zipes' translations include all of the tales that appeared in at least one edition; see the book for which variation he used. His versions are contemporary 20th-century, but not trendy or slangy. They may be more literally accurate than the older popular versions, many of which were translated in the 19th-century.
His notes on the collection as a whole and on individual stories are invaluable. ( )

First words
In olden times, when wishing still helped, there lived a king whose daughters were all beautiful, but the youngest was so beautiful that the sun itself, which had seen so many things, was always filled with amazement each time it cast its rays upon her face.
Long ago, when wishes often came true, there lived a King whose daughters were all handsome, but the youngest was so beautiful that the sun himself, who has seen everything, was bemused every time he shone over her because of her beauty.

Book description
For almost two centuries, the stories of magic and myth gathered by the Brothers Grimm have been part of the way children—and adults—learn about the vagaries of the real world. Cinderella, Rapunzel, Snow-White, Hänsel and Gretel, Little Red-Cap (a.k.a. Little Red Riding Hood), and Briar-Rose (a.k.a. Sleeping Beauty) are only a few of more than 200 enchanting characters included here.
Presents over two hundred tales by the Brothers Grimm, including well-known ones like "Sleeping Beauty," and darker tales such as "Death's Messengers." (Amazon.com offers a Look Inside, with Table of Contents, at https://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASI...)
