I'll read it to my children, 10 Feb 2012
I've known the original story since I was a child, but I wanted to read it with the exact words. Some people say that it's too violent and cruel for children, but I find it charming and with lots of tender elements among the cruel ones. It is a book that both children and adults can enjoy; and also a good device to analyse how morals where taught during the 18th and 19th centuries.
