Renowned children's book author Wanda G á g presents these classic Grimm tales, accompanied by whimsical illustrations. In recognition of her artistry, she was posthumously awarded the 1958 Lewis Carroll Shelf Award for Millions of Cats and also the 1977 Kerlan Award for her body of work. No other editions of Grimm's fairy tales for youngsters can match G á g's richness of prose and the humor, beauty, and sheer magic of her pictorial interpretation. Very best identified for her Newbery Honor winner Millions of Cats, Wanda G á g (1893 – 1946) was a pioneer in children's book writing, integrating text and illustration. In Tales from Grimm we find her touch on timeless stories like “ Hansel and Gretel, ” “ The Musicians of Bremen, ” “ Rapunzel, ” and other people. Born in New Ulm, Minnesota, she rose to international acclaim. Drawing on her peasant heritage and childlike sense of wonder, G á g translated the fairy tales in a uniquely American vernacular tongue.
