The author: The Brothers Grimm, Jacob (1785–1863) and Wilhelm Grimm (1786–1859), were German academics, philologists, cultural researchers, and authors who together collected and published folklore. They are among the best-known storytellers of folk tales, popularizing stories such as "Cinderella," "The Frog Prince," "Hansel and Gretel," "Rapunzel," and "Snow White." Their collection, "Grimm's Fairy Tales," is a cornerstone of Western culture.

The Illustrator: Ada Dennis, known for her distinct style in fairy tale illustrations, provided the color chromolithographs that capture the magical and whimsical essence of the Grimm stories. Her work is characterized by vibrant colors and a lively portrayal of characters and scenes. Evelyn Stuart Hardy, another notable illustrator of the period, along with others, contributed additional illustrations, offering varied artistic interpretations that enrich this edition. Their combined efforts resulted in a visually stunning rendition of the classic Grimm's tales.
