Scary Fairy Tales

The Brothers Grimm



The Brothers Grimm, or Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm, were German brothers best known for publishing a huge collection of fairy tales. They introduced to the world such classic fairy tales as Little Red Riding Hood, Rumpelstiltskin, Snow White, Cinderella, and Hansel and Gretel. As sweet and "Disney-fied" many of these beloved fairytales are now known to be, their original versions, authored by the Grimm Brothers, offer a more creepy and sometimes sinister spin.


Grimm's Fairy Tales was first published in 1812. The first edition contained 86 fairy tales, however, by the time it reached its seventh edition, the collection boasted 211 tales!


The following are some of their creepier fairy tales*:



Hansel and Gretel

Little Red Riding Hood

The Wolf and the Seven Little Kids





*Some Brothers Grimm fairy tales can be quite scary so please use caution with younger children.
