My Thoughts

This book is nothing sale short of fairytale   AWESOMENESS!
All of today's greatest YA authors have come together in one volume to breathe new life into some of the world's best known and most loved stories.

The retellings found in this anthology are a far cry from the "happier ever after" tales of childhood.
These stories live on the darker side of imagining.  The places where the things that go bump in the night live.
Some of the stories are direct variations on older versions,  and therefore will be easily recognizable for today's readers.
Some are just inspired by the tales they represent, and therefore are a new creation.
Going through the book and trying to guess which author wrote what, is half the fun of sifting through this fantastic collection.
