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.
So this very short story is all about being sweet and generous instead of mean and greedy.
I’m not really sure who Mother Holle is. I don’t know if she’s suppose to be like some goddess of the well or how she did what she did, but it is a fairy tale so I’m not digging too deep into it.
As most stories start, there is a pretty daughter who is miss treated and an ugly one that is loved by her mother.
I’m pretty sure you can paint the picture from that.
