I bought the kindle edition of this after seeing a review in Scoop (the kids literary magazine) and was not disappointed. I've been reading the stories aloud to my children (10&8 years) before bed and they are a big success. All the elements that you'd want from a collection of modern fairy tales (great writing, smart plotting, evil baddies, wholesome goodies, the odd grisly bit etc) but with the refreshing addition of some black heroines for a change. That my daughter remarked on this fact with such surprise and pleasure says it all really. Thank you Jamila Gavin!

Lovely modern fairytale stories, beautifully illustrated (though in black & white). Book is small in size (not like an old Fairytale book, A4/A3 size!). Font easy to read. Excellent price & value from Book Depository!
