What an incredibly imaginative and creative collection of stories. And I love the author's way with words and the way she approaches the tales from crazy/oblique angles/pov that it takes you awhile to make the connection to the standard more familiar tale that forms the base. Fractured/re-loaded fairy tales have always been amongst my fav type of stories, and this collection was more than satisfactory. I'm hard pressed to pick a favourite, but I'd say the very clever retelling of Little Red Riding Hood was it. My one nit pick was that the stories were too short.
