The secret to reworking a fairytale, in my opinion, is to identify the aspect that distresses us and use that as a creative springboard. That’s what every author in this collection has done. So if you have ever been irritated by the selfishness of the princess in “The Princess and the Frog,” or distressed at the idea of Beauty marrying her captor, or horrified at the way Snow White treats her stepmother at the wedding, read these fractured fairy tales and appreciate their inventive solutions.

I really enjoyed this anthology of fractured fairy tales. Each puts a new twist on an old favourite tale, and the result is a very fresh and creative set of stories.

My personal favorites were True Reflections (an interesting take on the story behind Snow White) and On the Wrong Foot (a humorous look at the romance of Cinderella and her Prince).

Recommended for any fans of fairy tale retellings.

I received an ARC from the publisher. This unsolicited review is my own personal opinion.

She can’t remember when she first started tapping away at a keyboard but she’s grateful that those early attempts at writing are lost in the ancient format of floppy disc. She does miss that racing MS-DOS game she used to play, but has found other games to spend free time on, such as Warcraft III
