    While most people will retain their power to put the book down when they're done reading, the stories in this book do cast a spell, one that snags imaginations and wishful thinking and pulls readers astray. Some of the stories are funny; others are tragic. Each story concludes with an "About" section in which the author talks about the inspiration behind the work.

    In addition to the title story, standout contributions include Elizabeth Wein's "For the Briar Rose," Kaaron Warren's "The Unwanted Women of Surrey," Dale Bailey's "Mr. Splitfood," Jane Yolen's "The Jewel in the Toad Queen's Crown," and Theodora Goss' "Estelle Saves the Village." Terri Windling's introduction, while not original to the book, provides an entertaining overview of the role of fantasy during the Victorian era.


    This book is a treasure house of delights and wonders.

    Ok not amazing

    Not all stories in here deal with magic. Some are simply stories set in the victorian era.
