The Grimms' fairy tales were not only translated but also retold by other people. 'My book of fairy tales' is an early 20th-century example. The author, Edric Vredenburg, retold some of the stories and edited the book, which has stunning images by illustrator Jennie Harbour.

This book featured in the 'Illustrating the Grimms' display at the National Library of Scotland from 19 September to 18 November 2012.
