The first collection of fairy talesChildrens and
Household Taleswas published in 1812 and it contained
more than 200 fairy tales. Some collections of the

In the original published forms, the Grimm's


fairy tales were dark and violent, in contrast to the
lighter, modern "Disney versions" of those tales.
They are among the best-known story tellers of
European folk tales, and their work popularized such
stories as Cinderella, The Frog Prince", Hansel and
Gretel", Rapunzel", Rumpelstiltskin", Sleeping Beauty,
and Snow White.
