How can you not be pulled into the cover of this book?  I’m telling you, the cover art is just a glimpse of what you will find in the pages of this dark compilation of tales!

I should tell you that this is considered a graphic novel and has won many awards including: Bram Stoker Award Nominee for Best Graphic Novel (2014)Milwaukee County Teen Book Award (2015)Lincoln Award Nominee (2017)Green Carnation Prize Nominee for Longlist (2014)Will Eisner Comic Industry Awards for Best Graphic Album-Reprint (2015)  Goodreads Choice Award Nominee for Graphic Novels & Comics (2014)IGN Award for Best Original Graphic Novel (2014)

There are five tales told though the most bizarre and chilling graphics that I couldn’t stop reading until I reached the end!  The artwork is magnificent.  If I had words to describe these tales to you….fairy-tales gone all wrong….would be it. Delightfully creepy reading guaranteed that is for sure!
