Overview

Show description from ABC:

"From the inventive minds of Lost executive producers Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis, the show is a bold new imagining of the world where fairy tales and the modern world collide: 28-year-old Emma Swan is shocked when Henry, the son she gave up, shows up on her doorstep after 10 years in desperate need of her help. He believes she actually comes from an alternate world and is Snow White and Prince Charming's missing daughter. According to his book of fairytales, they sent Emma away to protect her from the Evil Queen's curse, which trapped the fairy tale world frozen in time and brought them into our modern world. Emma is skeptical, but when she brings Henry back to his hometown of Storybrook, she is drawn to this boy and his strange story, soon suspecting that the town is more than it seems. It's a place where magic has been forgotten, but is still powerfully close; where fairytale characters are alive, even though they don't remember who they once were. The epic battle for the future of all worlds is beginning, but for good to win, Emma will have to accept her destiny and join the fight."

Once Upon a Time has a full 22-episode order that will run through mid-May 2012. It airs on Sunday nights at 8pm and is the #1 new drama.

The book itself will be small and gift-sized, and will feature original illustrations by a fantastic artist named Kevin Tong. Tong worked as an artist on LOST's art campaign and currently does amazing concert posters. His aesthetic is dark and edgy, and lines up nicely with that of the show-exactly what we're going for with these illustrations. For our book, he'll illustrate the cover, six full-page interior pieces to go with the tales featured in both the book and the show (Snow White, Cinderella, Rumplestiltskin, Rapunzel, Red Riding Hood, Sleeping Beauty), and a combination of small, decorative images and borders to adorn the interior pages.

    Great Fairy Tales- Very Disappointed With The Lack Of Pictures!

    Great book, love all of the fairy tales, and I am a huge fan of the show Once Upon a Time; however I was expecting there to be beautiful pictures, and it is just stories! That is a downfall for me! This kind of book should have great illustrations! Otherwise it is a great read! And wonderful to have around for the variety of tales (I believe 30 in all.)

    Would recommend the Nook version

    I bought a hard copy because I wanted a version with pictures. Another reviewer said the Nook version did not have pictures. The hard copy has one or maybe two pen and ink drawings per story, but they are simplistic and often only something like a sword, not actual scenes. If I could go back, I would have bought the Nook version instead.

    Also, I was a little disappointed at how many stories in this collection are not in the tv show Once, although maybe the writers will add them in later. Additionally, I was surprised that Beauty & the Beast was not a story in this collection. Otherwise it is a nice collection.
