In the month of December, the Most Beautiful Bookshop in the World aims to appeal to the younger readers. With Christmas holidays around the corner, enjoy this time by reading with the little ones. We recommend Esta História by David Machado, our author of the month, and Selected Grimm’s Fairy Tales by the Grimm brothers, our inspiration for the transformation of the Bookshop’s facade into the candy house from the tale of Hansel and Gretel. 

Selected Grimm Tales, Irmãos Grimm

The thirteen fantastic tales of the Brothers Grimm that we are publishing here, form part of an endless collection, with its powers and enchantment having marked generations ever since the early 19th century. With a shadowy tone of mystery, magic, humour and violence, these stories set their roots in western folklore to convey warnings to the youngest that not everything turns out roses – the true adventures and challenges of life require strength of will and, still more importantly, some imagination.

Esta História, David Machado

And when you can't tell a story...?
This is one of those fun things to do even when it's constantly interrupted by a picky listener.

- Do you want to hear this story?
- No.
