Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 10 Up
The beloved characters of classic stories, such as Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, and Mowgli, come to life as the denizens of mythical Fabletown. With the womanizing Prince Charming as mayor, things are off to a rocky start for these residents. Then Sinbad and his slaves arrive, and Charming misunderstands their Arabian customs and language. When Sinbad adopts American customs, his advisor loses faith in him and unleashes a genie that could destroy Fabletown and all of its inhabitants, unless they find a way to stop it. Also included in this volume is a bonus story about two wooden soldiers named Rodney and June who wish to be made real so they can marry. Willingham's seventh installment proves that this series storms on, full steam ahead. Readers unfamiliar with the Fable world can still follow the arc of this story, with few holes, and longtime fans will revel in the new plot twists and deeper development of its characters. Exquisitely detailed and vibrant art pulls readers into this well-crafted fantasy. Unlike some of its predecessors, this volume is fairly innocuous in content, besides some light cursing and mild sexual themes. A fun series for larger libraries and/or those that already carry the preceding volumes.—Jennifer Feigelman, Goshen Public Library and Historical Society, NY

    It's in the Baghdad!

    Willingham expands his Fables universe with the introduction of the Middle Eastern Fables. Although this volume lacks the excitement and action of the two previous volumes, the characterization is back to top form, and the discovery of Baghdad's secret by King Cole promises to amp up the action between Fabletown and the Adversary.

    If you love fairy tales

    This graphic novel series is a delightful take on our old favorite characters. They are fun to follow into their new adventures.
