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.
A boy is born and is prophesied to marry the king’s daughter at age 14.
The king doesn’t like this and he does everything in his power to make sure this doesn’t happen. Everything includes sending him down a river in a box, sending a letter to the queen to kill him on the spot, and sending him to retrieve three golden hairs off the devil’s head.
What in the world?
Is this kid lucky or is this kid screwed?
This is a good lesson book. I recommend.
