New Translation of the Grimm Fairy tales will Restore All the Gore

The original Grimm Fairytales were filled with gore and horrific scenes, which were lost in translations over the years. Some translations even added Christian values to the stories. A new translation in English restores all the gory scenes.

I read a few back in high school and I seem to remember Cinderella’s stepsisters cutting off their toes to fit into the glass slipper. This translation should be a bloody good one.
