I read this because of Grimm the new TV series. I remember reading some of these as a kid, but I had to remind myself of some the stories. Who writes such weirdness?! Who’s crazy folklore is this?! I guess it was all a bit different back then, and it definitely reflects a time when life was a bit more challenging. Some of these stories reflect a world view, eg, Cinderalla supposedly has roots in Greek and Chinese folktales. The brothers were linguists who were like the Alan Lomax of folktales. They are interesting tales; albeit very creepy, zany, and nonsensical. Not for young children (remember Rumplestiltskin and Hansel & Gretel); probably more for teens─they seem to like the slightly gruesome. They are very short and do not have to be read in order.
