A collection of stories that put a modern twist on classic fairy tales, depicting characters ranging from lost children who try to find their way home to adults who confront their past misdeeds.Great fairy tales are not always stories designed for children. The lurking wolf in “Little Red Riding Hood,” the gingerbread house that lures Hansel and Gretel, the beauty asleep in her castle—these fables represent some of our deepest, most primeval fears and satisfy our longing for good to win out over evil (preferably in the most gruesome way possible). In this captivating new collection, critically acclaimed author Jean Thompson takes the classic fairy tale and brings it into the modern age with stories that capture the magic and horror in everyday life. The downtrodden prevail, appearances deceive, and humility and virtue triumph in The Witch, as lost children try to find their way home, adults cursed by past unspeakable acts are fated to experience their own horror in the present, and true love—or is it enchantment?—conquers all. The Witch and Other Tales Re-Told is a haunting and deeply entertaining collection, showcasing the inimitable Thompson at the height of her storytelling prowess.

This was definitely worth reading. The author's stories were both original and the characters unforgettable. Most of the stories I could figure out which Fairy tale was used as the base, there were only a couple that I did not recognize. I'm sure there are a lot of fairy tales I am unfamiliar with so not surprising. Jean Thompson is a master storyteller. I really enjoyed the updated versions of these fairy tales.
