5.0 out of 5 stars It Moves On Well 5 Nov 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am reading all the tales in sequence and enjoy their shifting nature. No character or situation can be deemed permanent. The illustrations are beautifully drawn and rendered and the story flows easily. I cannot wait to read the next volume as I am.involved with all the characters.

4.0 out of 5 stars Thumbs Up! 18 Oct 2013
We begin with a one-shot concerning Cinderella. Then a two part story with Bigby in WWII. Finally a four part tale in Fabletown as Snow gives birth.

This scattershot approach allows Willingham to show his range and stretch his literary muscles without warping a single story into directions it isn't suited to go. Each is a great example of its genre and teaches us more about the characters involved. The period story is told through narration and presented as a diary entry complete with hand written text. Even though these are modern tales there are still classic lessons to be learned from them such as be careful what you wish for and the grass isn't always greener. We also see, or rather feel, Willingham's talent for evoking emotion in us readers.

The art is great with two artists on the job this volume. The WWII story has great colours that make it seem like newsreel footage from the time. The tiny panels also mark it out as separate from the ongoing storyline. It also has a great use of a map too.

Another top quality book with a broad range of stories to tell. Thumbs Up!

The Fables series is simply fantastic. The further you delve into it the better you can see the genius of Willingham, Buckingham and co! Highly entertaining stuff!
