This is a great book full of mysterious, enchanting, and well...Grimm fairy tales. The book includes stories like 'Donkey-Skin,' 'The Two Brothers,' and also 'Beauty and the Beast.' This book contains wonderful stories from Straopla and Basile, and also includes humerous, but almost gross stories by the Brothers Grimm.
