THE BROTHERS GRIMM
Once upon a time there were two very dissimilar brothers, whose combined talents produced European folk and fairy tales which were anything but sweet and gentle bedtime stories, instead they portrayed life as generations of central Europeans knew it, unpredictable and often cruel.
Although, when they realised that many of those who read their books, or had the tales read to them, were children, they did 'tidy' their stories up a bit.
