Swan Sister: Fairy Tales Retold - edited by Ellen Datlow and Terri Windling

This is a short collection of retold fairy tales. Half the fun of reading it, for me, was figuring out which fairy tale was being retold - sometimes i didn't get it until the very end and sometimes I didn't get it at all. Who knew have many different fairy tales there were in this world? Some of them very well written (The Harp That Sang), some of them were just okay (A Life in Miniature) and one of them was so hauntingly beautiful that it made me cry and I can't stop thinking about it (My Swan Sister). If you're into retold fairy tales, this is worth picking up.

Yes, I felt the same way. That first Little Red Riding Hood was pretty lame. But I really liked some of them.
