Block creates another wonder-filled world with this novel. The book is divided into sections, each telling the story of a familiar fairy tale. Some tales are set in the story's original time period but others have a modern twist. Readers will enjoy figuring out which tale goes with which story as the titles do not always give that away. Also, this book once again proves that Block is a fantastic writer as she shows that these tales are not obsolete.
