  • Fair for Its Day: The collection came out in 1845. "Don't tease the black kid" and "be nice to animals" were kind of progressive at the time.
  • Funny Moments: "The Story of the Wild Huntsman".
  • Nightmare Fuel: Most of the stories, especially "The Story of Little Suck-a-Thumb".

    The great, long, red-legged scissor-man.
