Fairy Tales for Grown-Ups by Jennifer Rowe

I received Fairy Tales for Grown-Ups as a surprise gift, and was delighted to read through it in an afternoon.

These seven short tales aren't adaptations so much as new whimsies, but they do represent the familiar elements of fairy tales we are more familiar with, from a little bit of magic to a journey of discovery. Frogs, trolls, and dragons populate the pages, along with some modern day archetypes of princesses and fools.

There's not a lot of depth to the stories, as they are all VERY short, but for a quick, enjoyable read, I'd recommend this book.
