My Thoughts:

This was an enchanting collection of fairytale stories. I read them while I was in the hospital and just loved them! 

Each of the authors added their own flair to the story creating something completely unique. The characters were fun and quirky.

I think my favorite was Gwen and the Three Dates. But all of them were fun and enjoyable to read.
