Author send me digital arcs in exchange for an honest Review!  

So it is a short story which barely took me 15 minutes to finish, which is the perfect length for children for the short story.

The story is about a group of children, all of them are suffering in lives in own way When one day they realized that each story resembles characters of fairytales, which made them daydreamers.

The book is based upon the story of six little kids, whose life share the similarities with famous fairytales and so they want to lead a life based upon their imaginations waiting for the magical outcomes.

But, the realization strikes hard when they got to know that the real essence of life lies in hope, cour
