Overview

These are not your mother's fairy tales...

Did you ever wonder how the dwarves felt after Snow White ditched them for the prince? Do you sometimes wish Cinderella hadn't been so helpless and petite? Are you ready to hear the Giant's point of view on Jack and his beanstalk? Then this is the book for you.
     Thirteen award-winning fantasy and science fiction writers offer up their versions of these classic fairy tales as well as other favorites, including The Ugly Duckling, Ali Baba, Hansel and Gretel, and more. Some of the stories are funny, some are strange, and others are dark and disturbing -- but each offers something as unexpected as a wolf at the door.

The book I read was about a family who loved wolves. One day a wolf stood by their door. The wolf would not leave their porch because, they fed him. People who read this book will love it just as much as I did. I'm not gonna tell you the ending because,it will ruin the story. When you read this book you will love the characters. Will you love my book more than any other book? I willrecamend this to any body who into scary stories.
