Grimm's Fairy Stories
on 22 April 2014
Just the thing for children before they go to sleep, and the light, switched off!
But I loved them. So dark! Were children of hardier stock in the 19th century? Perhaps 'seen and not heard' didn't apply
Oh, If I Could But Shiver! A boy warms himself from the burning bodies of hanged men! And just in case, your child is
still demanding chocolate from supermarket checkputs, our hero nails a beast's feet to the floor. Oh, then there's the
body in a coffin paragraph... . Not so much, 'wait until I get you home', as: I'll read Grimm's to you.
Weird and wonderful. Not recommended for those of a nervous disposition, or children under thirty-five.
