This was such a cool book. Quick read, but very enjoyable. The stories and poems were beautiful and creative as they retold old tales or extended them. This was truly a remarkable work. Half of the fun was trying to figure out what story the authors were retelling. I loved the new perspectives and twists to the stories. I definitely recommend this book. My personal favorites were "The Long Con", "A Letter Concerning Shoes", "A Shining Spindle Can Still Be Poisoned", and "Questing for Princesses".
