Written by Jane Yolen, this is a collection of common/traditional/not so common fairy tales that have twists. And these twists were delightful.
Some are a few stories, some are a single, some are a theme in tales, some aren’t. But they are all well written, each stands on its own, and they are all interesting.
This is a great book for anyone who likes TRADITIONAL, you know, not small child approved today, fairy tales. Very, very good. If you are a fan of urban fantasy or any kind of fantasy, I think you should give this collection a try. You might not like all of it, but there is likely at least one you will enjoy.
