Direct and unembellished, Lesser's retelling resembles that of the earliest German edition of Grimm, published in 1812, before the ferocity of the mother had been softened by the term stepmother and without the later addition of the final episode of the duck. A visual feast, the illustrations frequently recall Flemish and French genre painting of the seventeenth century, while the idyllic woodland scenes reflect a later Romantic mood.
