    didn't author those stories...they collected them from old story tellers of the time.  These were all old folktales that were quite old already and handed down from generation to generation among German country folk.  Some of them were also probably Eastern European in origin.  The Grimms wanted to collect, transcribe and preserve these stories for posterity before they disappeared.
