Philip Pullman Narrates Fairy Tale Book Trailer

Novelist Philip Pullman returns to bookshelves and libraries in November 12th with Fairy Tales from the Brothers Grimm: A New English Version.

To prepare, the author of The Golden Compass narrated a brief animated book trailer revealing his version of Little Red Riding Hood.  The paper illustrations in the video were made by Cheong-ah Hwang and the animation was created by Matthew Young. Here’s more about the book:

Pullman, one of the most accomplished authors of our time, makes us fall in love all over again with the immortal tales of the Brothers Grimm. Pullman retells his fifty favorites, from much-loved stories like “Cinderella” and “Rumpelstiltskin,” “Rapunzel” and “Hansel and Gretel” to lesser-known treasures like “The Three Snake Leaves,” “Godfather Death” and “The Girl with No Hands.” At  the end of each tale he offers a brief personal commentary, opening a window on the sources of the tales, the various forms they’ve taken over the centuries and their everlasting appeal.”
