Philip Pullman Reimagines the Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm | Brain Pickings There is no imagery in fairy tales apart from the most obvious. As white as snow, as red as blood: that’s about it. Nor is there any close description of the natural world or of individuals. A forest is deep, the princess is beautiful, her hair is golden; there’s no need to say more. When what you want to know is what happens next, beautiful descriptive wordplay can only irritate.
from Grimms' Fairy Tales by Marija Jevtic// as it is very dark, the first think that we see is little red riding hood, who stands out. The trees are small talk and very thin, which makes the wolf look even bigger and powerful.
Grimm's Fairy Tales This is not a good version for children. Fairy tales were not originally told for children. That's why we still like them. :) Use the Andrew Lang's version for children. They're a little softer.
