Great Fairy-tale Retelling

Beautifully written, fairy-tale caricatures come to life as believable, relatable characters. Mckinley's interpretation of this classic fairy-tale creates a magical world the reader wants to live in, and leaves them dreaming of enchanted castles, loyal horses, and libraries full of books. One of the author's best works.

very nice
