My Review: I don't remember the original fairy tale. Once I read this one some things jumped out as being familiar. I'm not a hundred percent sure what the twist was that these books usually have. But I really liked this one regardless. There hasn't been one that I haven't liked. Can't wait to read them all!

(Hardcover Worthy)
