Weird. The ISBN brought up another book from the same series (Joseph Conrad, no less!). Penguin 60s were 60 different little paperback titles published by Penguin for their 60th Anniversary.

It's good to go back periodically and read the Grimm's fairy tales as they originally wrote them (more or less - unfortunately I don't read German). Quite different from the Disneyfied versions - these versions could very easily be considered NOT suitable for young children. The princesses in the Frog Prince and the Twelve Dancing Princesses are spoiled brats, no matter how beautiful they may have been.

Here's another copy on my BookCrossing shelf.
