"Wonderful companion to the boys' book, this time addressing girls. This awesome book covers a variety of activities, from essential stuff like changing tires to fun stuff like jump rope and party games."
"Deeply written retelling of the myth of the god Pan, uniting the tale of his curse with another Greek myth and revealing his love for a deeply imperiled woman. Beautiful lovestory by a master writer!"
"Brilliant and poetic retelling of an ancient myth, through the eyes of the wife left behind and pondering her vows. Margaret Atwood's classic blend of poetic prose and sharp satire reach its peak in this volume"
"Enjoy reading not only delicious recipes, but totally awesome stories of some of the most rambunctious women in history. While some of the women were good and some were bad, all their stories (and these recipes) are quite flavorful and fun to read!"
"I'm afraid some of these tales have bad sexual taste, but luckily there are gems that make the book worth owning. The worthy tales are "East of the Sun", "Cinderella", "Mirror on the Wall", "Sheep in Wolf's Clothing", and "Ugly Duckling". These beautiful stories not only offer a romp through old tales made anew, but are deeper than the rest."
"Speaking of 'ol Mr. Rumple, certain authors tend to find his tale a bit flumoxing and unsatisfactory. In this unique book, author Velde offers several retellings of the original tale. None of them are alike, but all are great fun!
FWI: A few are not meant for really small children."
"Another diamond in the collection of adult fairytales. There are five books altogether in this series, with both gorgeous stories and poems, but I chose to list the two that have at least three poems."
