  2. WrensReads Review I have the complete set of the Grimm Fairy Tales, and there are so many that I haven t read They are very short, as one would know, so I have decided to read each one and give them a review Some are very vulgar, some are very cute and some don t even make sense Some of them are well known fairy tales and some have never been told Some are fairy tales we know but are not the same because they have been downplayed for the children This is just like the crow story about a sister b [...]

  7. This story was a lot like Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, but instead about a beautiful girl and her six brothers who get turned into swans This story is about how the girl goes through a journey of making six shirts made of the tiniest flowers and not speaking for six whole years in order to make her brothers become people again She was brave and didn t let anything get in the way of her promise, not even her evil mother in law stealing all three of her children and blaming her on it This stor [...]


  8. Wow Never thought I would have criticism for a fairy taleon the up side, it was sweet to see what the sister was willing to endure for her brothers Not speaking or laughing for SIX years While tailoring shirts out of flowerseesh That is all very moving, but then THREE of her children are taken away while she s performing these tasks and she still doesn t break her vow of silence in hopes of saving finding them And there is no resolution at the end when she finally can speak It says, she and the [...]


  9. This was clearly the inspiration behind the first book in Juliet Marillier s Sevenwaters trilogy, Daughter Of The Forest, which I loved to bits when I read it some years ago It made me want to revisit Sevenwaters, which I may very well do sometime in the future I just love this story, however it s being told I will forever be surprised it isn t a better known fairytale I ll keep my fingers crossed that someone will make a proper film out of it someday


  10. This is probably my favorite fairy tale because it s the girl who was the hero and not just a girl who was put under a spell and had to be saved by a prince The princess is determined to set her six brothers free from a curse that turned the brothers into swans This story that the love of family is strong.


  11. One of my co workers kept suggesting that I read this fairytale as I m forever knitting something during our staff meetings Though I don t think this was the version she wanted to give me, I really loved the simple artwork of Raidt.


  12. This is one of my favourite fairytales however honestly I prefer Hans Christian Andersen version better but that is just a personal opinion.



  13. Lovely, intense version Highly recommended for readers who don t mind when the heroine almost gets burned at the stake after being framed for murdering her babies Ages 6 9



  14. I love this fairytale It s so endearing I would do the same for my brother Now I want to read Daughter of the Forest even I want to read the other fairytales too



  15. Las suegras como siempre arruinando la vida de sus yernas.Gracias a Dios que esta historia tuvo un final feliz.
