old Serbian fairy tales in English. I had the privilege growing up with them in their original oral form, namely they were told by my grandfather to my father, which then told them to me. I know them in a slightly different version, which is normal when inherited from generation to generation. :)

If one takes time to read some of them, one will see where Jacob Grimm found inspiration for some of his fairy tales. Jacob Grimm and Vuk Stefanović Karadžić, the father of modern Serbian (as well as Croatian, Bosniak, Montenegrin), who was the first to put the Serbian folk fairy tales on paper, were good friends.
