This is an early collection of German folk and fairy tales (1782-1786). The stories themselves, though, are written in a satiric, often humorous style and were actually meant for the entertainment of educated adults, not children. If you enjoy fairy tales, but also enjoy 18th century satiric prose in the style of Henry Fielding or Christoph Martin Wieland, give this collection a try. A word of warning, though. Do not try to read all of the stories in one go. The style of writing is intricate and involved, and there are numerous allusions to both historical facts and literary works. ( )
