OriginsEdit

The Kinder- und Hausmarchen, or Children's and Household Tales by the famed folklorist brothers Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm was the first book of many they produced. It contained many well known fables and fairy-tales such as Rapunzel, Hansel and Gretel and Snow White. Many stories were edited for a more child-friendly audience, though the punishment of evil or 'the Bad Guys' seemed to increase.

The first volume (contained) contained 86 stories and was published in 1812. The second (MIA) contained 70 more and was released in 1815.

EffectsEdit

When the book is opened, it turns the surrounding area into an archetypal "Enchanted Forest", with lush trees and shrubs, red and white toadstools and sometimes a small brook. Small woodland creatures such as squirrels and rabbits can sometimes be glimpsed, though catching them has so far prooven impossible and they dissapear at the edge of the forest.

It is suspecte the second volume has similar effects, but it is currently MIA. It was seen in the collection of Gloria Von Dichi A.K.A Marie Perrault nee Guichon, butvanished with the rest of her belongings when she fled her home in Rio de Janeiro.
