    These five tales are all interlinked, not by character, but by an optimistic morale as the end result Cute, creative and a bit quirky, Petrushevskaya is talented enough but I ll have to check out her other stories and novellas to really grasp how good she really is.

    2 of the 5 stories left an impression on me For sure they re all fantastical, rly imaginative and you should nab a copy if you collect her books But it s not necessary if you re a casual fan.

    A funny little book.

  6. Sarah says:

    Short and sweet This mini collection brings together some of the slightly less dark and terrifying fairy tales from her repertoire.

  7. MissFede says:

    Unfortunately this is a very unremarkable short story collection Some good ideas but not well executed I particularly found the endings lame and rushed I would not recommend it.

  8. Ant says:

    I like these kind of dark, weird fairy stories, very good.
