Book review. The Tales of Beedle the Bard, by J.K. Rowling..?

Fairy-tales, before they were collected by the middle-classes were not nice moralistic tales where sweet women behaved passively and were rewarded with the hand in marriage of a handsome and unnamed prince. Real fairy tales gave voice to the the voiceless. Not just a voiceless underclass, but often the voiceless within that underclass. Those who's mouths were taped over by the ruling classes, and vocal chords pulled out by anti-children elders, patriarchal attitudes, poverty or plain selfishness within that class and their families.
