Gitta's Literary Escapades

Just another reader taking on (modern) classics, best-sellers, award-winners, non-fiction, and (guilty pleasure) chicklit armed with common sense, a brain and feminism.

The Little Peasant by Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm

The Little Peasant - Jacob Grimm, Wilhelm Grimm

The Little Peasant is remarkably similar to Hans Christian Andersen's Little Claus and Big Claus. Even though the Grimm version came first, I prefer Andersen's rendition.
