Hello lovelies! I have brought you a particularly fun & quick read! These are the fairy tales that precede the book “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children”. I have embarked on  that book today and cannot wait for Tim Burton’s adaptation that comes out September 30, 2016. I like to read in order, so that is why I started with this book even though it is the most recently published. To get a better knowledge of the future you must look to the past of course.

This book is composed of 10 peculiar fairy tales. All teach a life lesson in a entertaining albeit dark manner. My favorite would have to be “The Splendid Cannibals”. I would say these tales are more for young adults rather than children though due to some of the context. The art is also something to appreciate. The illustrations are by Andrew Davidson & are stunning. Another enjoyable piece of this book was this page in the front matter:

So, if you are in need of a quick fix that will leave you daydreaming I prescribe this book! If you have read it, let me know what you think!
