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 story reminds me a lot of Little Red Riding Hood. The wolf wants to eat them all and swallows a group of the kids (which are goats in this case, not human children) whole. He deceives them a few times and they accidently let him in. So actually, it is a little mix of the Three Little Pigs too.
I would say this book can be read to kids. There isn’t anything creepy, unless you count a wolf wanting to eat goats (which is nature and it isn’t gross reading, so I feel it is okay).
