I love the illustrations, because what could be more gruesome than fairy tales unwashed by Disney?

Grimm and grim derive from the same Germanic root of fierce and furious, and the original fairy tales held nothing back! I grew up with some very, very old copies of Grimm and Anderson, and from the time I could read I loved those books! Kids are much better at handling information than we give them credit, and I agree with Classical Sass that it’s more about us than them.
