MY WISHFUL WEDNESDAY [ 14 ] : Fairy Tales from Brother Grimm

~ Red Riding Hood ~ [ source ]
It's Wednesday again, and I had special wishes for several books, but in my no. 1 wishes is a very tempting book, that I really wanted since X'mas last year, and waiting for special sale - special prize until this January, still hasn't got the right price (for my money-pit)
It's "FAIRY TALES from the BROTHER GRIMM : A New English Version" by my favorite author Philip Pullman. I love Grimm's Stories, so dark and full with mystery and imagination, and I always love Philip Pullman's writing on novels and short stories. I don't know when I will get a chance to holding this book on my hand, so finger-cross and with the magic-spells, as soon I declare this, it will be mine soon (^_^) 

Review : 
#1 New York Times bestseller Philip Pullman retells the world’s best-loved fairy tales on their 200th anniversary

Two centuries ago, Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm published the first volume of Children’s and Household Tales. Now Philip Pullman, one of the most accomplished authors of our time, makes us fall in love all over again with the immortal tales of the Brothers Grimm.

Pullman retells his fifty favorites, from much-loved stories like “Cinderella” and “Rumpelstiltskin,” “Rapunzel” and “Hansel and Gretel” to lesser-known treasures like “The Three Snake Leaves," "Godfather Death" and "The Girl with No Hands." At  the end of each tale he offers a brief personal commentary, opening a window on the sources of the tales, the various forms they've taken over the centuries and their everlasting appeal.

Suffused with romance and villainy, danger and wit, the Grimms' fairy tales have inspired Pullman's unique creative vision—and his beguiling retellings will draw you back into a world that has long cast a spell on the Western imagination.
