Hockney had already made etchings based on the Rumpelstilzchen story in 1961 and again in 1962, and for the new series he planned to illustrate twelve of the tales, but finally settled on just six titles: The Little Sea Hare, Fundevogel, Rapunzel, The Boy who left Home to learn Fear, Old Rink Rank, and Rumpelstilzchen.
