A knight rescues a damsel in distress. They marry, the whole kingdom rejoices, and everyone lives happily ever after. The end.

Or at least that's what Official sources say. But what tales do insiders tell? What secrets lie buried deep inside Davey Jones' Locker?

What, dear reader, about The Unfairy tales?

The stories the Knight-in-Shining-Armour and the Damsel-in-Distress hav

What happens when an avid reader or call him a sort of a Bookaholic turns into a writer? A man with a wildest imagination or a man with a mission to even further better the characters that not only he himself loved or still loves since childhood but we also love the same characters. In my wildest imagination I have dreamed of seeing a fight sequence between Batman and Superman and the best thing is that the makers actually delivered it to us a few years back. I have even imagined how the discuss ...more

Get ready to unravel the mysteries of the mind, look at fairy tales with different eyes, and feel amazed by the author’s ingenuity. Here while dark characters shine, and lend hope, the behavior of some we’ve idolized / sympathized with since childhood, leave us thinking.

More Unfairy Tales is without doubt, creativity at its best. Serving a fare of five stories (fairy tales) that have been with us since early childhood, the author delves into the vagaries of the mind, and reveals how one’s behavi

Most of the times a story is written and read from the protagonist’s point of view. The story portrays the good as good and bad as bad. But as every coin has two sides, similarly every story, too, has two sides.

If one has read Unfairy Tales (the first book of the series) by the author, one will have a fairly good idea of what to expect. But the author has crossed my expectations. If the first book was mind-blowing, the second book, More Unfairy Tales just left me speechless.

And T.F. Carthick has done it again. Taken five more fairy tales and turned them upside down. Well not exactly upside down, but looked at them from a different character’s point of view.
In this second book of the series he has chosen five popular fairy tales:
Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
The Beauty and the Beast
Red Riding Hood
Rapunzel
The Shoemaker and the elves.
Have you ever heard these stories from the dwarfs point of view or thought about what the witch felt at losing Rapunzel, the only chil

I loved the first volume of the retold fairy tales--Carthick's Unfairy Tales. I loved it so much that reading this second volume was a given.

I'm delighted to find that Carthick has written another winner, every bit as engaging as the first book. I loved his unique take on all the timeless classics but I particularly loved the retelling of Snowhite and the seven dwarfs. The observations of the dwarfs are insightful and pithy. One must nod one's head--ruefully--for those observations are bang on.

Coming to my recent read, More Unfairy Tales, I think Carthick has coined a new word - Unfairy. Well, whether it will be added to the Oxford dictionary or not, only time will tell. For now, he has brought out characters to the forefront, who are either the antagonists or the side characters.

If On a Winter's night:
The POV is of the dwarves. Those cute little things we tend to ignore in our narration of Snow White. Carthik has brought their irritation, their love, and their protective nature for

More Unfairy Tales by T.F. Carthick is the second part in the series Carthick's Unfairy Tales. The collection of short stories features five different fairy tales told from different point-of-views than those of the princesses. They give us a new insight on why the "minor characters" did the things they did, and how those things impacted the entire story. For example, how could the seven dwarfs let Snow White in so easily? Or why did Dame Gothel

This book was definitely better than the first book of Unfairy tales by Karthik. As in every short story collection, I enjoyed some stories and found some not so great. I found Beauty and the Beast retelling underwhelming maybe because of having read multiple retellings of that story in the past. I loved the rest of the stories in this book.
Pick it up if you like fairy tales or retellings. It’s perfect to read with your children.

I totally loved the idea of this book. This book is the second one in the series of unfairy tales that the author has written. The cover of the book is catchy and the title is up to the mark. The language used by the author is simple and easy to understand. The blurb is completely intriguing and the narration is set at a moderate pace.

Having enjoyed reading the first book called Carthick’s Unfairy Tales, I decided to read this one also by TF Carthik. This is once again a collection of five fairy tales with twists unique to the author’s style.

The cover looks gorgeous and colourful, even better than the last one. Congrats!

Hats off to the author’s vivid imagination, turning all these classic tales into something else altogether.

A fairy tales is a fictional story that may feature characters such as Fairies, Goblins, Elves, Witches, Giants, talking animals and enchantments often involving a far-fetched sequence of events.
Coming to this book, "More Unfairy Tales" it is not a collection of Fairy tales but a collection of 5 "Unfairy Tales" as the title suggests.
The book will surely make the readers to go through their perceptions towards fairy tales once again.

More Unfairy tales by T.F.Carthik is a collection of short stories that are basically retellings of famous fairy tales told from an alternate point of view. Most of the times the narrator is either a co-character who played an equally important part in the tale but was overlooked or the notorious antagonist that we have ever since hated. 

What binds these stories together is the element of surprise as we get to know the other side of the story. The part that is absolutely plausible but we were to

Who doesn’t love fairy tales? The popularity of these age-old tales is evident in the numerous retellings that are being read, appreciated, and bashed all over the world. From high fantasy to erotica to horror, writers retold the tales in various genres.
More Unfairy Tales is no different. Yet, it is super fun and interesting. Five of the famous fairy tales have been turned into ‘unfairy’ tales. Now, it doesn’t mean there are no fairies. The title has been selected with a deeper meaning. These t

Fairy tales have been a huge part of our childhood. As I grew up, I realized how they were too good to be true and wondered what would've happened if the evil witch was given a redemption arc or if the prince wasn't charming after all or if the princess wasn't a damsel in distress, all these questions made me always feel like there were too many things that could've played out differently if only we were provided a different point of view.

Rating: 4/5

I am a big fan of Carthick's first installment of the unfairy tales - a retelling of old stories from a different perspective, usually from the supposed antagonist's or a comparatively unimportant character's perspective. The last book was full of humour, sarcasm, wit; as is the second part.
I won't reveal which stories feature in this collection, but will say that Carthick continues to engage the readers well with his signature writin

Had loved reading the first set of Unfairy Tales by T F Carthik, so when I saw the second installment, immediately picked it up on Kindle.
I really liked his unusual take on our very familiar fairy tales with a very different and very modern twist. It's interesting to read, despite knowing the original fairy tale well, such is the Unfairy touch. I was not disappointed at all. This set of five fairy tales includes ever popular Snow White and the seven dwarfs ( I loved their new names) and our dear

This book is a collection of five fairy tales written differently. Some end as the original tales did and some end in a different way. The first four stories have been written in first person from the point of view of different characters, like the story of Snow White and Seven Dwarves has been retold from the points of view of seven dwarves individually; Beauty and the Beast and Rapunzel, from the point of view of two different witches and Little Red Riding Hood, from the points of view of Red ...more

This book, More Unfairy Tales is on old, popular, ever-loved Fairy Tales. It is a retelling of the old fairy tales that the children have always enjoyed. No one who reads would not have read them.

I found the stories in More Unfairy Tales very interesting and different. This time the author has chosen five stories that are not all sweet and nice like the earlier ones nor are they extremely popular.

This is the second book of the fairy tale series and even though the stories are not related and we

To take a known tale and turn it on its head is no small task. I quite loved how TF had done it in the first volume of unfairy tales, so was quite eager to read this second one. First impression comes from the cover art and without a doubt, this was a better design compared to the first volume's.

What I liked about each of the stories was that going by the title, one couldn't guess which fairy tale was going to be retold, and each title itself was a clever spin on a boo

Review :
As we grow up, we hear fairy tales and we read fairy tales into our lives. Every image and every word is imprinted into our minds. The fairy tales we read are never abandoned. They grow with us and our dreams become molds of the many morals and happy ever after fairy tales display.
But have we ever heard Unfairy Tales?
There are always two sides to the stories,

Have you ever wondered if you could read the story of Snow White from the point of view of the seven dwarfs? Or for that matter if you could know what was the wolf’s perspective in Little Red Riding Hood’s story. If yes, then T.F. Carthik’s More Unfairy Tales is the perfect read for you.

Fairy tales - stories that we have heard, read and watched various versions of, over the years. Some toned down to cater to the young readers, others giving a more feminist angle to them, some overplaying the romance angle, others putting some practical sense into the characters while maintaining the romance though. The list can go on and on.
What is special about TF Carthick's More Unfairy Tales is that they are narrated by the 'insignificant' characters of the fairy tales. So it's not all goodi
