" I have newer enough from this story I can read it again again and again... " said.

" What an odd story but it does have a good lesson for life that if you work hard then you shall be rewarded and that you don't get something for nothing. I enjoyed the story and would read it again along with the other Grimm stories. " said.

"Mother Holly is a fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm. At least in this retailing the story is not as dark and grim as some of the other Grimm fairy tales. It's about 2 sisters and how one is kind and hardworking and the other is not kind and does not like working. It's a story about change and forgiveness. I like this one more than some other fairy tales because it teaches how when we make mistakes we can change. We are not stuck in our ways but we need to fix our mistakes. The lazy sister learns to work and to be kind. I think it's a good example to children. I would read this story to my children. I would recommend it for children as young as 5 or 6." said.

" Liked the story, but didn't love the illustrations. " said.

" Though the illustrations charmed me at first, the characters were flat, predictable and uninspiring. The altered ending from the Grimms' original tellings to drive home his moral of the story was too obvious and forced. The whitewashing, golden-blonde cloning of the two sisters in the "happy" ending was gross to me. " said.
