About the Book

In addition to incorporating a small amount of actual history, events from various fantasy stories are woven into these tales. Cinderella and Snow White are there, but not in the same way with the same story. In addition to characters and events from the Grimm brothers, the tales borrow from more modern authors such as Porter, Poe, Pullman, and Rowling--even Star Wars. Thus characters go back and forth in time, enchanted frogs and ravens appear, enchanted mirrors become enchanted paintings, a glass slipper becomes an enchanted earring, an animagu becomes a magimorph and the force is with us--only it's not the force.
