The one book that i could read again and again and again. It proves that the princesses really aren't as fab as we thought they were when we were little kids. My son convinced me to read this and even though these are a little dark as a mother of two and a middle school language arts teacher I can say these stories are appropriate for any confidant reader.

While I see that this book was delivered, it was never delivered here. I do hope that the recipient of merchandise I've paid for has enjoyed it thoroughly, however.

This is a way fun book of 15 short stories and poems told in the villians' points of view. In a lot of the stories, I really started to feel sorry for the villian. Included are Rapunzel, The Goose Girl, The 12 Dancing Princesses, The Boy Who Cried Wolf, Hansel and Gretel, Sleeping Beauty and others.
