So.
This is a small collection of some of the Grimm Brothers' more bloody and vile tales. Some of them are a bit hard to read and it's definitely hard to see the value in such tales.
The introduction was somewhat interesting, containing thoughts on the fine line these tales walked between adult entertainment and children's tales.
Since these tales have been told over and again, I expected the illustrations to hold some good merit, but they were as crude in one sense of the word and some of the actions of the stories' characters are crude in the other sense.
