The Brothers Grimm's version of Little Red Riding Hood isn't as good as Charles Perrault's (IMHO), which predates theirs, and his was simply a written version of an oral tradition. All the Grimm lads did mostly was collect and record/edit existing stories I believe, as opposed to Hans Christian Andersen who wrote his own (including The Snow Queen).

I don't mean to be a pedant (especially as I am going off the top of my head from memory without checking name spellings, facts and such) but I would say a lot of the time kids hear fairy tales these days, unless from an early edition, they're probably somewhat different from what was collected then by either Perrault or Grimm x 2, what with happy endings, Goldilocks' ipod and so on, so making them all go under Brothers Grimm might be mis-leading. I heard most of them orally meself, with lashings of violence. Thanks Mum.

Edit - There are a fair few fairy tales based stories under Originals which would presumably need moving to any new section, probably under a theory of them being archtypical stock characters or something.

Edit 2 - Although, of course, another popular way for kids today to hear some of them is Disney movies. There weren't no talking clock in the original Beuaty and the Beast, I reckon.

I could potentially make a fairy tales sub category, and then under IT, I could put things like Brothers Grimm, Hans Christian Anderson, and etc. That would make more sense I think in the long term, with the ability for unlimited sub levelling I will have.

Sounds like a plan. If you made it a "Folklore/Fairy Tales" sub catagory, it would also fit well to include the stories that straddle the line as well as things that might traditionally have been considered more adult (such as Robin Hood?) to be seem as fairy tales?

maybe Fairy Tales should be Brothers Grimm? Since those are the stories mentioned, I'm thinking.

Snow Queen is Hans Christian Andersen.

That sounds like a good idea to me! :)

Okay, what I'm going to do about the fairy tales is the following....

Create a top level in books called "Fairy Tales, Legends, and Folklore"

As second levels, I will have Fairy Tales, then Legends, then Folklore

third level will be the specific sub categories, i.e. Little Red Riding Hood, The Little Mermaid, and etc.

I really, really will be very happy when we are no longer limited to 3 levels ONLY of categories. It really cramps what can be done, especially in the multiple fandom sub domains.

Fairy Tales top level

If you have a specific fairy tale or whatever in mind, with a story for it, let me know. In any case, the 2nd level categories (Fairy Tales, Folklore, etc) are still posting categories.

Can't believe I missed the second request....Claymore added
