  • Fun App!

    by Swimmer Person

    I love this app-I love old stories and the Grimm Brothers are my favorite series! It's so much fun to read and there are a lot of life lessons within the tales the Grimm Brothers tell.

  • Love this app!

    by Puppy777

    This is a great app because in most of the stories there are important life lessons. It is free which is great, and it always saves my spot in my book. Love this app! :) I would recommend it to all my friends!

  • Incredible

    by Magikitty

    This is the full Grimm's fairy tales in 5 volumes. I am in awe how realistic the book pages look. The stories are the originals. I see people complaining about no illustrations. Hmm. There ARE illustration plates though. From the original books. Press the menu and tap illustrations and there you go. This is a great app it's like reading a real book. I too, like other reviewers can't believe it's free. That is so kind of the developers. Thank you! Get this app you won't be disappointed.

  • The Best iPhone App

    by Cheesey Chello

    I love fairy tales and could never get my hands on them fast enough. It was too short, though. I read all five volumes in three days, I love them that much. But, still it is the best book app I've ever had, and I learned so many new fairy tales. It was awesome, I LOVED it!!!!!

    by Ying ^-^

    I am satisfied with this app but i just hope they could let us listen to our ipod music while on the app reading...

  • The Grimm Stories

    by The Grimm Admirer

    This (or these if you have all of the volumes of Grimm stories) book is amazing. It has a great mix of fantasy and reality. There are many great Grimm stories. The Grimm tales are very filling to those who like fables with a twist. The Brothers Grimm are the greatest fable writers of all time.

  • Grimm


    Was so excited to find this app then I started reading it and realized there not the original stories there modified so not to be as frightening. So they put grimms name on the app even though there not the grimms tale. Deleted the app. But I must admit did like how it has look and sound like an old book. Made me actually consider keeping it just for that reason.

  • More Stories

    by MC Sunshine

    You need to add more stories. When people finish reading all the stories on this app, they're going to delete it because there's no new stories to read.

  • Dissatisfied

    by Colebham

    I was very dissatisfied. The stories in this app are not the originals, and I found that many stories were grammatically incorrect.

  • I like this App

    by 12reDersteady

    This app is neat. I like how it holds my place.

  • F

    by Casscat23

    It's amazing! And I love how you can bookmark it!

  • Okay for non Grimm fans!

    by Lauren Lussier

    I was disappointed by this app. The stories basically have the same plots but it's NOT the brothers Grimm's stories. The stories have been made more friendly - not the Grimm's words. If you want the real original stories your best bet is to buy the book! Not from the app store :(

  • Great app!

    by Mer-lawn-nuh

    This app us awesome, especially since its free! The stories are great for all ages

  • Best ever

    by Aljs2222221114444443

Love how it seems like a book glad it bookmarks your page so you don't lose spot so cool with different volumes making seem like a real book collection also has all fairy tales imaginable makes you feel like its a nook or even real book!GET THIS APP!!!! Not a waste of time and it's free totally awesome even though it's a book very easy to open so far no problems love how it has table of contents and doesn't move for you
