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.
“An impoverished man has had so many children, that (by the time he has another) he finds that he has already asked everyone in the world to be godparents for his previous children. Befuddled as to how he is supposed to find anyone to act as godparent for his newly-born child, he withdraws to his chamber for the night. While fast asleep, he has a dream that tells him to depart from his house and give fraining to the first fellow he encounters in regard to them being his child’s godparent.”
Eh, this was an okay read. It wasn’t on Goodreads so I had to add it. But apparently it has a follow up called Godfather Deaths so that’s going to be interesting…
