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 guy gives money to frogs and meat to dogs and expects things back from them and doesn’t (because they are animals and they don’t understand anything besides “aik” and “wow”). He gets hot headed (often) and ends up going to the king with this problem. His story makes the princess laugh and the king offers her to the man because he made her laugh.
The man (peasant) say she already has one wife too many, and declines. The king tells him to come back later and he will give him money. The guy comes back after two guys give him trouble and he takes as much as his pockets can carry.
This story is the worst. It doesn’t make a lot of sense and it is very weird…. or odd. There isn’t anything that would offend a child, but it just isn’t a good story. There isn’t really any point to it.
