Forget what you know about fairy tales and step into the School for Good and Evil. This B&N exclusive collector’s edition of the first book in the series includes a special introduction from the author, two never-before-published Evil fairy tales, and more!

Two best friends have been chosen to be students at the fabled School for Good and Evil, where ordinary boys and girls are trained to be fairy-tale heroes and villains. One will train for Good, one will become Evil’s new hope. Each thinks they know where they belong, but when they are swept into the Endless Woods, they’re switched into the opposite schools. Together they’ll discover who they really are and what they are capable of, because the only way out of a fairy tale . . . is to live through it.

This first book in Soman Chainani’s New York Times bestselling series is just the beginning, and this B&N exclusive collector’s edition includes a special introduction from the author, two brand-new Evil fairy tales available only in this edition—“Children Noodle Soup” and “Rabid Bear Rex”—and more!
