Fairy Tales with a Twist, 18 Feb. 2013
The Silver Phoenix and Other Tales is a remarkable book of short stories. Some, whilst only a few pages long are equally as good as any story I have ever read. They provide an alternative to some of the more traditional fairy tales, for example 'The Silver Phoenix' is reminiscent of 'The Ugly Duckling' and is a very good alternative to this tale.
I did not find a single one of the tales in this book lacking in imagination or heart. All conjure up images of places and times that are either fantastical and wonderful or close to home and familiar. Over all a very inspiring book that will delight any reader!
