Reader recommendation: Grimm's Fairy Tales

Monitor readers share their favorite book picks.

I recently read a whole volume of Grimm's Fairy Tales. As an adult you get a different perspective on these tales. The ever-present conflict between beauty and ugliness as well as good versus evil, the symbolism, and the somewhat childlike language makes reading these a joy.
