This book was one used in a college-level Children's Lit. class. It has all of the classic fairy tales as originally written, which are dark, but also has the history behind each tale. I wouldn't give this to a 9 year old as the pbs description notes this is for ages 9-12. It is more of an adult look at the history of the fairy tale. The actual tales in here would be ok for an older child, but the rest is written for adults. Very interesting!

Seemed a little above my daughters level...but interesting side to fairy tales.
