I have the complete set of the Grimm Fairy-Tales, and there are so many that I haven’t read! They are very short, as one would know, so I have decided to read each one and give them a review. Some are very vulgar, some are very cute and some don’t even make sense. Some of them are well known fairy-tales and some have never been told. Some are fairy-tales we know but are not the same because they have been downplayed for the children.
This could have given me nightmares as a child.
It starts out sounding like a barren-mother asks for a snow-white baby.
She has a baby boy who is white as snow and red as blood. The mother then dies because she is so happy (who knew that was ACTUALLY a thing?).
So, of course, the dad remarries and the step mother doesn’t like the step son. Oh, and she has her own daughter.
So, naturally, she kills the boy and makes it look like the daughter did it (because that’s what a mother should do to her child).
She then, to cover up what is done, makes the boy into pudding and FEEDS IT TO THE FATHER. WHAT IN THE STRAIGHT HECK IS HAPPENING?
So, will she get away with it or will a little birdy tell all her secrets?
