There were two stories in this book that I really enjoyed...The Elves and the Shoemaker (which I had heard before) and The Cat and Mouse in Partnership (which was a new one for me).
The Elves and the Shoemaker tells a story of how things should be -- that those who are sucessful shouldnt forget their own humble beginings and should help those less fortunate than themselves.
The Cat and Mouse in Partnership tells a story about how things actualy are -- you may trust in someone, and keep your word

I found a copy of Favorite Fairy Tales Told in Germany in my Grandma's basement, and borrowed it for "research purposes." They're straightforward retellings (not really retold so much as copied straight from Grimm's), but there's a lot of charm in the illustrations.

Four Stars: This book was really really good and I'll definitely recommend it to people with relevant interests.
