Editorial Reviews

"Fairy tales and comics! This was meant to be. Like peanut butter and jelly, nuts and bolts, rhyme and reason. Editor/writer/artist Chris Duffy has assembled a wonderfully diverse group of fairy tales - from classic Grimm and Perrault to non-European gems - and challenged the coolest bunch of graphic storytelling artists to bring them to life. The result is a collection of absolutely powerful, funny, and pleasing fairy tales ... in the most kid-friendly form. I was enchanted by Gilbert Hernandez's fresh retelling of Hansel and Gretel, thrilled by Luke Pearson's The Boy Who Drew Cats, and tickled by Charise Mericle Harper's The Small Tooth Dog. But that's just me. There is something in Fairy Tale Comics for every kid. Sweet and sour, rhythm and blues, kit and kaboodle." -Jon Scieszka
