I’ve been on a bit of a book buying binge. I am a HUGE fan of Half Price Books. I highly recommend them if you have one in your area. I picked up this irresistible book the other day:
So far I have only had the chance to read one tale. Initially I was disappointed as it followed the predictable story of an innocent girl, a mean witch, and a boar that naturally ends up being a handsome young man. Nearly everyone ends up happily ever after, and just as I was about to roll my eyes and feel cheated by my purchase, the tale ended with this little line:
“And I deserve a pudding for telling thee this lie.”
I was charmed and expect to find some fine little tales after all!
