Publisher Comments:

These are not your mother's fairy tales...

Did you ever wonder how the dwarves felt after Snow White ditched them for the prince? Do you sometimes wish Cinderella hadn't been so helpless and petite? Are you ready to hear the Giant's point of view on Jack and his beanstalk? Then this is the book for you.

Thirteen award-winning fantasy and science fiction writers offer up their versions of these classic fairy tales as well as other favorites, including The Ugly Duckling, Ali Baba, Hansel and Gretel, and more. Some of the stories are funny, some are strange, and others are dark and disturbing — but each offers something as unexpected as a wolf at the door.

This is a collection of retold fairy tales for young adults. There were a couple that were pretty forgettable (like "Ali Baba & the Aliens"), but some of the stories are truly excellent. My favorite was Kelly Link's rendition of "The Six Swans."
