A collection of German fairy tales first published in 1812 by Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm, the famous Brothers Grimm. Their most famous tales are instantly recognizeable: "Rumpelstiltskin", "Snow White", "Rapunzel", "Cinderella", "Hansel and Gretel", and "The Frog Prince." The collection is often known today as "Grimms' Fairy Tales".
In Household Tales actress Kelly Lintz brings a contemporary voice to the traditional fairy stories of the Brothers Grimm. Lintz's performance invokes a brilliant, tireless nanny - perhaps one with a degree in English lit - reading bedtime stories to mesmerized children. The brevity of these recordings is suitable for immature attention spans, but the language itself can be at times more suitable for adults, as it becomes apparent that frogs and dogs and sparrows spoke in a slightly more antiquated discourse in 1812 than they do today. Lintz, however, brings a fluency and exaggerated emotion to the occasionally outmoded language that easily fills in any gaps in a child's linguistic understanding.
