The Musicians of Bremen and Other Silly Stories
The Brothers Grimm are often thought of when discussing fairy tales, especially the dark and gruesome parts that have been left out in more modern retellings. However, their writing can be lighthearted, too, as evidenced in the whimsy of the both "The Musicians of Bremen" and "The Three Spinsters." Along with "The Stone Soup" and "The Greedy Brownie," these stories offer readers a chance to exercise their imagination with talking animals, fantastic settings, and more. Colorful illustrations accompany each silly story, adding additional bits of amusement.
