  • a lot of fun and will keep the reader engaged

    The second book in the Fairy Tales Gone Bad collection has just been released in time for Halloween. Frankenstiltskin is a retelling of the old fairy tale Rumpelstiltskin, though I did have to have a quick scan of what the original was about as it has been many, many years since I read it. In this version, a taxidermist’s daughter is taken by the king of the land to bring back to life his deceased son’s animals, including a fox and a polar bear. Her father told one of the king’s men that his daughter is a better taxidermist than he is and has a way of bringing the animals back to life, though he didn’t mean literally. The king orders her to bring the animals back to life but she can’t, she can only stuff them and make them look realistic. That is until Frankenstiltskin arrives and offers to bring them back to life in return for a reward. Frankenstiltskin is a lot of fun and will keep the reader engaged the whole way through. It contains some amazing black and white artwork on each page that brings the retelling to life. The book is a little bit creepy and quite humorous at times too. It is a good length for a middle-grade reader and will keep them entertained for a while, yet, short enough that they could read it in one sitting if they so desired. One of the main things I love about this series is that the books contain some wonderful messages, this time the messages are about the way people treat animals and how to look after them properly. Another amazing book from the collection after ‘Zombierella‘ which was released last year.

    Thanks for your feedback!
