Spoiler & trigger alert - the princess discovers the true nature of the Frog Prince not with a kiss, but by flinging him against a wall. Many of the other stories are equally blunt, forceful, or realistic for the times they came from.

Of note is the modern excision of the last phrase from the closing formula: "And they all lived happily ever after until they died."
