Reviews

School Library Journal - Marybeth Kozikowski, Sachem Public Library, Holbrook, NY

"These retellings zip along, thanks to sharp dialogue and smart updates that feel fresh. Lamoreaux's full page manga-esque illustrations, rendered in grayscale with punches of red, are plentiful and will keep reluctant readers engaged. Strong back matter in each volume includes a history of the original story and writing prompts for readers to create their own twice-told tales. A fine choice for keeping traditional fairy tales alive." - School Library Journal

Library Media Connection - Marion Mueller, Library Media Consultant, Rawhide Starr Academy, New London, Wis

"Take a classic fairy tale character, add a contemporary urban setting with a significant sinister plot twist, and the result is one of these tales. Action is detailed and expanded; dialogue is modernized and made edgy, as are the characters’ actions. . . .If your school includes a writing unit featuring rewriting and parodies, this set could serve as examples." - Library Media Connection
