Erstwhile

Erstwhile: From the Tales of the Brothers Grimm by Gina Biggs, Louisa Roy, and Elle Skinner

A Graphic -- collection of fairy tales, not novel.  All from the Grimms.

So if you've read the complete collection, you will recognize them.  Otherwise probably not.  Some, indeed, like "The Old Man And His Grandson", are folktales of other varieties.

Some interesting artwork and faithful retellings.  I particularly like how it manages to dramatize "A Tale With A Riddle."
