The Brothers Grimm were aptly named.

I can't say my score on this quiz is anything to brag about, but I'm still impressed it only took me two tries to spell "Rumpelstiltskin" correctly.

I've had a book of the original Grimm fairy tales on my shelf for years. Time to take it down and read it. Who needs Tarantino?

So in the end of the most common version of Cinderella, the Prince arrives at the house, the step sisters attempt to woo him and fail, then Cinderella puts on the shoe and marries the prince. The step sisters also end up marrying lords and everyone lives happily ever after. In the Grimm version, the step sisters cut off parts of their feet in an attempt to fit in the shoe and then pigeons peck out their eyes and they live the rest of their lives as blind beggars

My favorite was Hans the Hedgehog. He was half boy, half hedgehog and went riding around on his faithful rooster playing bagpipes and herding pigs until a series of events has him marrying a princess.

this quiz should accept thumbling as an answer since it is the official title of Grimms "Daumesdick". Tom Thumb is actually a character of English folklore.
