The tales in this short book were all familiar tales that we grew up on. Some that have become simple with Disney but others remain in the pages of the more complex Brother’s Grimm Fairy Tales. Either way, they’re familiar. However, they’re not the tales you grew up with. Ms. Prescott gives the Brother’s Grimm a run for their money with her tales of witches planting milk teeth for the future to the Frog Prince who may actually fear True Loves Kiss and a Little Mermaid with interesting tastes. Familiar tales with new twists and incredible imagery!
What I really enjoyed was some of the tales had a more modern spin on them and faced some of the concepts that modern society faces. But at the same time, some stayed within the realms of fantasy.
Definitely try out this book if you are seeking a short read or like the synopsis said, spread it out each night and enjoy the tales.
I received this eBook from Book Review 22 in exchange for an honest review.
A collection of short stories, "Milk Teeth" is a quick detour from the happily ever after one usually expects from tales based on magic. The author weaves a seductive turn of phrase, with writing that pulls the reader in and leaves them wanting more.
Unfortunately, as with most short story collections, she doesn’t quite meet the expectations that the blurb creates. Although I enjoyed the book, and read it in a single sitting, I felt that some of the tales tried too hard to create a frightening atmosphere, falling short on both purpose and horror.
That being said, "Milk Teeth: Stories with Bite", is a nice little addition to the dark fairy tale genre, with a new and interesting take on some old favourites.

Prescott's darker, yet bite-sized (ha!) tales are 2-6 pages each and seem to be taken from Cinderella (a pyromaniac), Sleeping Beauty (the daughter of a fae who curses her to wake from death's sleep with true love's kiss), and the Red & White Queen (the Red Queen killing the Huntsman with the original intent to kill the White Queen) stories, to name a few.
"Milk teeth" is a wonderfully written re-telling of some old fairy tales. Lizella Prescott gives them a dark twist with a beautiful prose. Not a single word is superfluous, and every sentence is precisely weaved to make the reader gasp in surprise.
I just finished it in a sitting and I'm craving for more. I'll surely read more of Lizella Preston's books.
FYI: I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
Milk Teeth is great for those who love a darker side of fairy tales. With interconnecting tales and a fresh take on old stories, this book is a great quick read.
