Everyone thinks they know the real story behind the villains in fairy tales--evil, no two ways about it. But the villains themselves beg to differ. In this anthology for younger readers, you'll hear from the Giant's wife (from Jack and the Beanstalk), Rumpelstiltskin, the oldest of the Twelve Dancing Princesses, and more.

If you wonder why fairy tales always have happy endings, then this book is for you! A collection of short stories by a selection of great authors, we get some twists on fairy tales you wouldn't expect. Ever wonder if Rapunzel was really an innocent damsel-in-distress? Or how the wicked old woman in the gingerbread house came to have a gingerbread house in the middle of the forest? This book answers those questions!

A great read for reluctant readers or boys who don't want your classic "mushy" fairy tale!
