      I liked the characters in this story and I also enjoyed the plot very much. I liked how the princess learnt her lesson and to ot judge a book by its cover. I thought that the story progressed well and the developement of the princess' character was wel done and it showed well how different events had changed her outlook on her life. The ending is a good one and if I were to read it again from the start the difference between the princess at the end and at the beginning would be strengthened.

      This was a pretty good short story I read online about a princess who is taught a lesson after she made fun of others appearances. A great tale from the brothers Grimm. If you enjoy fairytales, definitely check this story out for yourself.

      Prefect fable, wonderful illustrations, and witty side conversations between the characters. A story within a story. All of this in a slim children's book.

      I loved this. Be humble and graceful. Work hard and be rewarded.

    • Namiko says:

      This story reminds me of Shakespeare's "The Taming of the Shew." Maybe the princess learned a lesson but I'm not sure that their marriage would be happy or not

      When you are too proud, vain & selfish; you learn a lesson for your excess arrogance! Teaching a lesson to a self centered person is best to bring them back into their senses! Really like the story (Y) Here's the story eastoftheweb/short-sto

      WrensReads Review:I have the complete set of the Grimm Fairy-Tales, and there are so many that I haven’t read! They are very short, as one would know, so I have decided to read each one and give them a review. Some are very vulgar, some are very cute and some don’t even make sense. Some of them are well known fairy-tales and some have never been told. Some are fairy-tales we know but are not the same because they have been downplayed for the children. The king as a beautiful but spoiled daug [...]

      I'm still not too sure how I feel about the little boy and girl in the title pages that consent to act out the parts of the characters. I don't know what to make of that. But the story itself is good. It's a little weird at first, but it deals with social classes and gratefulness. It has a happy ending, so that's good. Lessons can be learned from it. Overall, it was a good book.

      King Thrushbeard's story by the Brother's Grimm: Snotty princess rejects all suitors, angers father, gets wed to poor man, learns to be a better person, discovers poor man actually King she taunted earlier in story. Illustrations are kooky and neat - really enjoyed them.

    • Stephanie says:

      My new favorite fairy tale! Nobody knows this story. However, it is a story I believe everyone should be aquainted with!

    • ABC says:

      Illustrated by Maurice Sendak. This story is about a very picky princess. It is a Grimm's fairy tale I have never heard before.

    • Michael Fitzgerald says:

      The sly commentary in the illustrations provides a second story at no discernible added cost.

    • Briana says:

      3 stars for the story. Such a grim (ha!) tale. "/5 stars for the art. It's fabulously quirky and eccentric.

      The illustrations are fantastic.

    • Anastasia says:

      It's such a sweet story by the Brothers Grimm. Very kid friendly and also a great book for reading aloud. This short story contains a powerful lesson about life and how it should be approached.

      Considering this is one of the less well known stories this is a short sweet fairy tale and I strongly recommend it.
