Once upon a time the world was sweeter than we knew. Everything was ours; how happy we were then, but then once upon a time never comes again. – Johnny Mercer

I’m not a happy-ending person. I want to know what happens once Cinderella rides off with Prince Charming. – Melissa Joan Hart

We always want the happy ending. Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella, The Frog Prince. We all want a Fairy Godmother, you know how it goes.

Once Upon A Fairy Tale tells the stories again – only not in the way we expect them. Of course, Grimm’s original stories weren’t as we think (the stepsisters cut off their toes to try to fit into the glass slipper, you know) but these stories are quirky and strange, funny and twisted, and a great lot of fun! Here, Little Red Riding Hood wears the cloak because it really does hide those nasty stains from being married to a vampire. And being arrested by the Fairy Tale Police for kidnapping Beauty and being a Fairy Tale Killer, (I didn’t do it!!) makes it a really bad day for Melinda Lightfoot. These twisted tales are a hoot, and such great fun to read. For everyone who loves fairy tales, but knows that living with Prince Charming after the wedding doesn’t always mean “Happily Ever After” I highly recommend it!

Once upon a Time, in a Kingdom that was just a little twisted…

This oh-so-funny anthology is well worth a happy Sunday of tea and giggles!

I received this book from the publisher in exchange for a realistic review. All thoughts are my own, and I really enjoyed it.
