This tale was collected and told by the Brothers Grimm, two brothers who published their first collection of fairytales in 1812. Their book Children's and Household Tales was a great success and over time more stories were added until the collection totaled over 200 stories. The Grimms' collection of folk tales may well be the best known work of German literature.
