Description

Fairy tales enchant. They play with our imagination and they have the power to impress us like few other forms of literature. Whether you've asked yourself the reason why that is so, or not, is of less importance, for fairy tales will continue to fascinate even the oldest, wisest and busiest minds. This book is a tribute to those cherished tales collected by the brothers Grimm, Joseph Jacobs and Hans Andersen, among others of note, but you won't find those stories within. No you won't. In this book, you will find instead 15 original fairy tales that address the issues of our times, just as those traditional tales addressed issues of their day. While the stories within are mature tales, and not quite the tales that a six-year-old might read on their own, they are still tales meant to be read to them, as it should be, and they are certainly tales that will appeal to more mature minds. So get ready to read about ogres, trolls, goblins and dragons. Prepare your mind for magical spears and enchanted shields, for cursed amulets and stubborn swords. More than that read about valour and about glory, read about honour and about truth. Read about the humanity and the weaknesses of the heroes and the villains of these stories, and enjoy tales that were written for you.
