Our battles do not cover us with riches, with glory. We marry no princesses, gain no kingdoms.

I found the stories to be imaginative and fascinating. I must admit that short stories are not usually my favorite format, but these won me over. A re-imagining of the "Puss in Boots" story was one of my favorites.

She remembers being in the woods one time with two others. Something about this frightened her, so she ran away. When she tripped over a rotten log, a large spider ran across it. She screamed, and the others laughed. Eventually, she made it back to the house.
