Many of us would have listened to fairy tales during our childhood days..While growing up, I loved to listen and also read many stories which took me to another world..I adored and believed those stories when I was young..
In this book, the Author talks about such fairy tales, but with a twist..He makes us think from a completely different angle..He explains about the complexities involved in a simple story and how people perceive things..It is not just a simple fairy tale, but definitely more than that, if we concentrate deeply on these stories..I loved the way in which he uses satire – It made me to laugh and think…
There are totally seven stories in this book..I enjoyed reading all the stories but my favorite ones are “Of Mice and Horses” (This story is different version of Cindrella) ,“The frog who would be King” (talks about a princess who refuses to marry a prince), “The beans of Avarice”( a story about boy, magic beans and magician) “A tale of one city” (about the piper) and “What the hobglobin did” (a very little man who helps a girl).
Overall, I feel that this book is interesting and refreshing with a different point of view to read..Kudos to author for thinking out of the box!!!
My rating for this book is 3.5/5
