Household Tales


Read by LibriVox Volunteers

(5 stars; 3 reviews)

The complete Brothers Grimm stories, as translated directly from the German. Some of the stories will be familiar such as The Frog Prince, Rapunzel, and Cinderella. Other tales are less well known such as The Three Black Princesses, and The Story of the Youth Who Went Forth to Learn What Fear Was.

Content Note for Parents: some of these stories do not flinch from dark themes. For example, in this version of Cinderella birds peck out the eyes of the wicked stepsisters! - Summary by Beth Thomas (6 hr 18 min)
