About The Book

This Brothers Grimm classic fairy tale about a spoiled daughter and a lovely step-daughter demonstrates how being honest and hardworking pays off in the long run.

About The Author

Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm were born in 1785 and 1786 near Frankfurt, Germany. In their early twenties, they began the linguistic studies that would culminate in their collected editions of folk- and fairy tales. They got their stories from peasants and villagers, and sometimes from already-published works from other cultures. Jacob did much of the research; Wilhelm put the stories into literary form.
