Household Stories is a book featuring a collection of fairy tales gathered by the German folklorists the Brothers Grimm.[1] The tales were translated to English from the original German by Lucy Crane.[1] The book also features a number of illustrations by Walter Crane.[1]

There is at least one copy of this book in the Hogwarts library.[1]

Behind the scenes

  • This prop book label, featured in Hogwarts library scenes throughout the Harry Potter films, was based on the title page of an actual 1893 edition of an English translation of Children's and Household Tales (commonly known in English as Grimms' Fairy Tales). The title page art features an intricately illuminated initial "H" in the word "household." This was likely impossible to incorporate into the prop label, and, thus, the prop label reads "Ousehold Stories".
