Just a note that Project Gutenberg at http://www.gutenberg.org/ has at least two translations of the apparently original fairy tales as well as many, many sanitized versions. These various translations have been around for many decades and are available for free online.

The Hard Facts of the Grimms' Fairy Tales
 by Maria Tatar

Grimm's Grimmest   - by Wilhelm Grimm

Please note that Grimm's Grimmest is not for the faint of heart.  This book
tells these tales in their original form, not the form we're used to seeing
in Disney movies and picture books.  Sex, murder, and bloody revenge are all
common in these tales.  So if you validate this book, be aware that it is,
indeed, very grim.
