The tales included are:
Prince Caspar and the Mirror of Truth, (which is a new tale with a familiar feel. Very nice.)
Case Dismissed (the aftermath of a fallen beanstalk. It's a short story and rather forgettable)
In the Eye of the Beholder (from the viewpoint on a certain magic mirror. I felt it was worded oddly early on but I enjoyed it.)
Three Long Pigs (a rather disturbing story about cannibalism. I read online that a long pig is a human prepared for eating...)
Prisoner of the Ruined Keep (Another original story and a very nice one that left me wanting to know more about the characters, what happened next and a magical hand-me-down item.)
The Tiger by the Hearth (a story told in the same way one of Aesop's fables might go.)
Pitching Red (A rather confusing story that I didn't really enjoy. I think it is about Red Riding Hood aka Red-Cap trying to get the Brothers Grimm to include her story in their works)
A Win-Win (another Red Riding Hood inspired tale. I think the two about Red Riding Hood are the least enjoyable in the collection. This one has a mean set of characters though it was fun to read.)
Bird's Eye View (The only Cinderella inspired tale. This one is based in the setting of the German Cinderella: Aschenputtel. While I did enjoy it the author claims it was inspired by Hans Christian Anderson's Cinderella...which is misinformation.)
Beast from Afar (A pleasant tale inspired by Beauty and the Beast)
The Land of Dreams (another story that was original and leaves you wanting to know more. The evil queen seems so familiar and interesting)
The March (A horror tale about a certain instrument and the man who plays it.)
The Journey of Prince Balfour and Stephan. (the final tale and a bit of a disappointment. I was expecting it to go out with a bang but it was not a bad tale.)
Overall I enjoyed the book and will give it four stars. While a few stories missed the mark they were still all fun reads and you can't fault one story for being less interesting than another. I think it could use some more stories to fill it out, the book felt too short to me.
I am by no means trying to insult any of the authors with my complaints or criticisms, and I think the stories all deserved to be told.
If you can pick it up for a good price and enjoy fairy tales I recommend it!
I publish a lot of fairy tales and these are terrific.
In fact, the only reason I did not give it the highest rating was because... I have (a possibly mistaken) idea these days that 5 stars should be reserved for a Pulitzer Prize novel.
I just might change my mind about that idea!
Adore this genre!!!
