Four favourite fairy tales will never be the same again.

William J. Brooke is a master of modern storytelling. He recreates a sense of connection, previously provided by bards and communal poets, which our society has lost.

Brooke, whose Untold Tales (1992) steeped us so intriguingly in the "fractured" fairy tale genre, shows us yet another way familiar stories from childhood can be made fresh. Here, he uses the framework, his two main characters being Teller, an eccentric old scribe who writes imaginative fiction, and a fussy, independent little girl who becomes Teller's caretaker, companion, inspiration, and, occasionally, his main character.

What wonderful re-imagining of favorite fairy tales. The author has such a wonderful gift of saying things very naturally and with subtle humor. Although he lost me a bit at the end of the book, the first two or three stories are among the best I have ever read.

This book is wonderfully written. I love a book that has reread value and this is definitely one of those. An even better experience the second go around.

I enjoy the idea of reimagining old, classic stories, but this seems to be lacking in the magic the originals had.

Perhaps some of my blah feeling for The Frog Prince story came from the setting I was in (dentist office and another medical waiting room) but it just seemed to meander on and on about how miserable they were. I did enjoy the unique twist to the story, but it wasn't enough to erase the plodding feeling to getting there.

The turned around version of Beauty and the Beast was unique but it ended up annoying me instead of intriguing me. I felt Iike I couldn't sympathize with either Beauty or Beast.

I stopped reading in the middle of the 3rd story because it seemed to have the meandering problem of the Frog prince story x30. I'm giving it 3 stars because the idea and effort were good and I feel that just because it didn't appeal to me, there could be people who will enjoy the quirky approach. It's reminiscent of Vivian Vande Velde's story Frogged but in my opinion, it lacks the lighthearted, witty touch of Velde's work.
