The fairytale element isn't as pervasive as I could have wished for - actually I would have liked the book better if there was more to the storyline about the princess and her quest, and perhaps a little fewer algorithms to explain.
But it certainly has a lot of quite good metaphors - and I would recommend it to anyone looking for non-mathematical explanations to computer science principles. Don't read the whole book as a story, but select a chapter here or there to learn more!
