  121. My favourite is The Juniper Tree. It is an amazingly well written fairy tale, featuring a terrible stepmother who kills her stepson and serves him to his father (her husband) for dinner! Her daughter, who loves her step-brother dearly, gathers together his bones and buries them under a Juniper tree. The bones rise from the ground as an absolutely beautiful bird and he flies off to sing a song which accuses his stepmother of his own murder. He sings his song to a goldsmith who gives him a goldchain, he sings to a shoemaker who gives him a pair of red shoes and to the Miller who gives him a millstone. He flies back to his home and drops the gold chain for his father, he drops the red shoes to his stepsister and he drops the millstone on his evil stepmother. After this act of vengeance he turns back into his human self. Okay, the mini version doesn't sell the story really well but when you read the story it really is amazingly well written!
