Summary (From the publisher):

In 1888 Bertha Pappenheim published (anonymously) her first book of five fairy tales, “Little Stories for Children” (Kleine Geschichten für Kinder). These tales have never been translated before, nor have they appeared in German since their original publication. They reflect on Pappenheim's treatment, dealing with guilt, evil and death. They are not just for children, but also serve as parables for adult visions. They allowed Pappenheim to be reborn, transformed, serving as a kind of "writing cure."

In 1890 she published another collection of fairy tales, “In the Junk Shop” (In der Trödelbude). In these nine tales, nine domestic objects tell their tales of woe and misery to each other, as if they were engaged in a nocturnal therapy session. We hear, for example, the melancholy story of the Old Lace, the Little Doll, the Coffee Grinder, the Music Box.
