Read in September, 2011

This was a fun one. During difficult times, a young boy finds himself in a strange and dangerous world that very closely resembles the worlds and stories described in his beloved fairy tale books. The woods are dangerous and full of vicious creatures. David just wants to go home. It's an excellent coming of age story.

It is a much darker and frequently funny retelling of many familiar fairy tales. It is frankly really refreshing to hear these stories in a way that is completely void of Disney-ish cheer.
