There are some good stories here, which put an interesting twist on familiar stories and nursery rhymes. In particular, Flycatcher's story is quite dark. There's a lot of nudity in this book: that doesn't bother me, but it's probably best not to read it in public (e.g. on a train). The framing sequence isn't quite so good, particularly if you're already familiar with Scheherazade; it's only significant as a way for the main cast to acquire certain items.

(view spoiler) You don't need to read this to understand the main series, but it does explain a few things, particularly in the Christmas story (vol 9).
