Book Description
Drawing in the reader with the classic wonder of a fairy tale and the funny twist of an adult read, each of the seven stories involve both the traditional characters, such as frogs, trolls, and dragons, and quirky modern characters including the city-weary Justin, Angela the merchant banker, and associate professor Knight, among others. These tales follow Justin, the typical city boy, whose plans for rural bliss fall apart in "Justin and the Troll," and even celebrate the value of a good hair day in "Curly Locks." Other tales such as "The Lonely Prince" illustrate how to test love with pizza and cheap wine. With humor and magic, these fairy tales reaffirm the belief in happy endings.
