The stories themselves will also stand the test of time, as the book contains both children's and adult stories from the Grimm Brothers. Other reviewer's will have done a much better job at explaining the quality of the stories than I, so I will leave the descriptions to them. However, I will add a clarification that I felt was missing from the other reviews when I purchased this book. The children's stories ARE suitable for children's ears. Any reference to Rapunzel becoming pregnant are in the notes in the side columns, and can be skipped until they themselves can read it and ask questions at a more suitable age.Read more ›
