This edition seems consistent in language and style with the old edition I grew up with and is as good to read as ever. It is translated in the archaic and poetic style of English that relates very closely to the German idiom. I do wish that the publishers of this ebook had included a frontispiece with information on edition, translation and whatnot to give me more confidence that it is the real thing.

This collection is a load of interesting little stories. These originals are way more twisted than fairytales of my childhood. In these versions, the repercussions are more bloody and less forgiving.

I loved these fairy tales as a child, and can still remember most of them. My parents gave me an entire set of books called "Junior Classics" which included Grimm's Fairy Tales, Aesop's Fables, Hans Christian Anderson, and so many, many other stories! Wish I still had those books, but alas, my sisters also discovered them, and...well...you can guess what eventually happened to them!!! Needless to say, I am so very happy to have this complete collection, which I will now read to my great-grandchildren, with great pleasure!
