This is a reprint of a collection of fairy tales originally published in 1981. The stories are magical and lyrical, often reading like poetry, painting lovely visual pictures and crying to be read aloud.

This book contains four short stories - two retold fairy tales, and two original fairy tales. Each piece is excellent and unique - my particular favorite is "The Hunting of the Hind," one of McKinley's original tales.

Retellings of classic fairy-tales. Beautiful stuff - some interesting twists, but very pure and true to the tradition of these stories.
Not as memorable or powerful as The Blue Sword (but that's one of my favorite books EVER). A quick read, and wholly enjoyable.

Four short stories that use familar fairy tales as a spring board and then leap off into the building mythos of Robin McKinley. Good stories, clean, with imagination. Not real fast paced, if that's what you want. But satisfying.
