Grimm's Fairy Tales: Household Stories from the Collection of the Bros. Grimm

Grimm's Fairy Tales: Household Stories from the Collection of the Bros. Grimm - Jacob Grimm,  Wilhelm Grimm,  Lucy Crane,  Walter Crane The original Grimm's Fairy Tales are definitely not the "happily ever after" tales many of us grew up with. Nonetheless, many of the tales, when they're not being weird and sexist, are still quite enjoyable. It is bizarre, to me, how absolutely morbid some stories are, but it's also kind of hilarious. I'd recommend this translation (with accompanying illustrations) to practically everyone, especially since it can be found for free online.
