My Review:

The cover of this book has given me a shock. It is wonderfully designed. In the cover, there are many things- a tree on which a beer is riding to reach the top of the tree, a full moon in the sky, a joker standing beneath the tree,  a ghost horse rider and some other things- these have made the cover so attractive that can bring people’s attention to its. The title says its own story. After reading the title one can get an idea about the content inside the book. The cover has been made matching the title. The blurb portion has been written well enough that cam make a sense in reader’s mind about the content inside the book. This book consists of nine short stories that can help you to take you away to their world. The author has done a great job by creating these short stories. He has penned down those stories in wonderful ways that can touch your heart. Moreover, all stories have been narrated very well. I like this book very much and would like to recommend this book to all short story lovers.

Overall ratings: 5/5

Product Description

An evil dragon. A damsel in distress. A concerned father seeking a savior. A hero galloping off to the rescue – a knight in shining armor. Now THAT is stuff of fairy tales.

But what if the father’s real concern is for the dragon’s hoard; What if the damsel’s reason of distress is the marriage proposal by her pompous savior; and what if the story is told by the horse who bears not only the overweight knight but also his heavy, shining armor all the way to the dragon’s lair and back, facing certain death in the process?

What if there was more – much more – to all your favourite fairy tales than meets the eye?

This book chronicles not one but seven such unfairy tales – tales told by undead horsemen and living cities. Tales of mistreated hobgoblins and misunderstood magicians. Tales of disagreeable frogs and distressed mice. And bears baring their souls. Once you read these stories, you will never be able to look at a fairy tale the same way ever again.
