Jacob Grimm

On January 4, 1785, jurist and writer Jacob Grimm was born. Along with his brother Wilhelm, the Brothers Grimm embarked on a project to compile a written collection of oral folktales. This important collection was later published as the Grimm’s Fairy Tales, which included such classics as “Hansel and Gretel,” “Little Red Riding Hood” and “Snow White.” What’s your favorite Grimm fairy tale?
