Once Upon a Time, there was . . . a big tower with a girl called Rapunzel trapped inside. Have you ever thought about all of the unusual buildings in fairytales and nursery rhymes and who would have designed them? If you want to know who, well, find out from Lynda Collins. And while you’re questioning these fairy tales, did you ever wonder how the Princess managed to feel that pea under all of those mattresses? Was there some sort of conspiracy to gain the throne? You only have to read Jan Edwards’ story to find out. And for that matter, what about the poor bears who had their home invaded? How do the bears feel? And who are the invaders. All questions, which can be answered by Theresa Derwin. As for the Beast – well, is the Beast good or evil? Did the witch who changed him into a beast do something good or something bad? Hannah Lackoff seeks to explore these issues, and maybe muddy the waters even more. In Colin Fisher’s tale we meet a Gretel who is immediately feisty, sarcastic, and quite aware of the absurdity of her situation, and the Witch was more than a little obsessive compulsive. And finally, we meet William Meikle’s version of ‘The Three Little Pigs’ where anything can happen! If you enjoy reading fairy tales that twist and surprise, then ‘Grimm and Grimmer: Volume One’ is for you. Step into our world of fairy tales retold . . .
