Fairy Tales from the Brothers Grimm: A New English Version

That theoretical novel—a book where Pullman could focus more on his own voice and his predilections, and could take center stage—sounds far more promising than yet another classic-tale collection.

If Mr. Pullman’s Grimm is relatively traditional, that is a gesture of respect not only to these folk tales but to their origins, and to the surety we, like small children, sometimes crave in our stories.
