Did you know that Cinderella’s stepsisters got their eyes pecked out by birds? Really. And that
Rumpelstiltskin ripped himself in half? And that in “The Mouse, the Bird, and the Sausage,” a mouse, a bird, and a sausage all talk to each other? (Okay, I guess that one’s not that grim.)
Those are the real fairy tales. But they have nothing on the fairy tales in this book.
For more twisted tales look for A Tale Dark and Grimm and In a Glass Grimmly.
