The majority of fairy tales read to children these days are so watered down they bear little resemblance to the original folk stories from which they descend. This is particularly true of many tales written - or, perhaps it should be said, collected - by the Brothers Grimm. For those who prefer their children hear the stories as they were told for generations before the days of political correctness, health and safety and Hollywood, Acorn Classics bring you the unadulterated, original tales as written down over a century ago by the Brothers Grimm themselves.
In this tale - The Frog Prince, in fact the first fairy tale featured in the Brothers’ famous collection - a princess befriends a frog who is kind enough to retrieve a golden ball she drops into a pond. But what is the frog’s secret, and how can the princess help him?
