Eighteen original stories that take familiar fairy tales and shift them around to give an entirely new slant.
Fairy tales are among the earliest fantasies we are exposed to when young and impressionable. They stay with us throughout our lives, whether in their original versions or filtered thorugh cartoon retellings.

From the adventure of the witch in the gingerbread house and her close encounter with an oven… To Golda Lockes, who has a special arrangement with those well-known bears… To a murderous attack with a glass slipper… To Jack, a successful theorectical geneticist, who discovers just how perilous research can be… To a wolf detective who sets out to solve “Grandma’s” murder…
