    I loved this particular collection of Grimm tales and the illustraitions as well. Short descriptions or summaries or whatever I felt like writing for each of the stories below. ----------------there may be spoilers-------------The Juniper Tree: This particular story I had actually read before, but I liked this version better. The Three Army Surgeons: Sortof funny, sortof creepy. I think that the moral was 'Don't do stupid things to impress people, especially if they involve maiming yourself'. Th [...]

    I read this book because my curiosity about Grimm's fairytales was piqued by the book "A Tale Dark & Grimm."

    Wildly entertaining ~ I loved this book! If I were a child in 1822 reading these stories I probably wouldn’t be so amused…

    Visually pretty, high-quality, shiny paper. Well-told fairy tales, and beautiful illustrations. Definitely a keeper!
