Praise for Tale Spins

Not usually enamoured of either re-tellings or poetry I was totally taken aback by just how much I relished this trilogy of alternative fairytales and re-tellings aimed at the Young Adult market. ~Tracy (Goodreads)

TaleSpins was like walking into a vintage store and finding a true treasure. This book takes the fairytales we all grew up on and gives them an interesting and modernized version that I enjoyed. ~Rose (Goodreads)

bookreview
Tale Spins by Michael Mullin is a collection of fun, “alternative” fairy tales. Meant for YA genre, this set of short stories is told in a fun rhyming fashion. I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed these stories. I loved the rhyming…it added whimsy to the stories. I really found myself comparing these tales to their predecessors and liking their similarities and differences. These are stories that I think my tween would enjoy as well.
