If you have a chance to look at this book, you will likely be impressed by the art. Claire Wendling's "cover" pieces are quite excellent, as is the art by João Lemos and Takeshi Miyazawa. They truly exemplify fairy tales. The problem was in the stories. C.B. Cebulski took Marvel characters and shoehorned them into old tales. This would be disconcerting enough for those who weren't familiar with the characters, but when mixed with moralistic passages, the surreal preachiness of the tales soured the experience for me.

Still, the art is often breathtaking. (Marvel Fairy Tales) is worth a look.
