Incomplete and Abridged

Missing three stories present in the Kindle Edition (which appears to be the same translation, so I don't know why they're not included):

- The Fairy
- The Ridiculous Wishes
- Donkey Skin

Further, it also omits Perrault's morals at the end of each story. This might be for the better if you're playing the stories for children; Perrault's moral of Bluebeard was "obey your husband" (even if he's a murderer). Still, if I'm listening to the original 1600s Fairy Tales, I'm doing so because I want to know the actual original stories, not a sanitized version.

The narrator has a thick accent (possibly German? He sounds like Henning Wehn). It's a bit distracting, but he tells the stories well.
