Once upon a time some poor German students did not know what to read. They tried a German novel, but it was too long. They tried German poetry, but it was too boring. They tried a German short story, but it was too hard. Then one day they read a German fairy tale. It was just right, and they read the whole thing. Delighted, their teacher waved a magic wand, and some of the best fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm appeared at his web site. The students read them all, did the exercises, and lived happily ever after. And this power has stayed with the tales, so that you, too, if you read them, and do the exercises, will live happily ever after.
