"Wonderfully done compilation of Russian, German, and Irish folktales that bear resemblance to classics (for instance, "Sapsorrow" is akin to "Cinderella" in the lost shoe) but have their own elements that make them interesting. The only story I cannot recommend is "The Heartless Giant." A treasure for anybody of any age."
"When you live in our world and your mother's Rapunzel and Puss in Boots is your adopted brother, you know things most people don't. Like how the world in which all fairytales exist, the Wild, is trying to take over your town."
