Did you ever wonder how the dwarves felt after Snow White ditched them for the prince? Do you sometimes wish Cinderella hadn’t been so helpless and petite? Are you ready to hear the Giant’s point of view on Jack and his beanstalk? Then this is the book for you.

Thirteen award-winning fantasy and science fiction writers offer up their versions of these classic fairy tales as well as other favourites, including The Ugly Duckling, Ali Baba, Hansel and Gretel, and more.

Some of the stories are funny, some are strange, and others are dark and disturbing — but each offers something as unexpected as a wolf at the door.
