The series is set in the present day, but fabletown was formed centuries before. This is a story from their early days, when snow went to visit some arabian lands to ask for military aid. Condemned to death by the sultan, she survives by telling him a new story every night. Yes, just like you know who.
The stories she tells are backstory for the regular characters in the fables series. A lot of interesting information is revealed on the way, particularly in the unbearably sad life story of flycatcher.
A mixture of text and picture stories, the latter done with some beautiful art, this is like a proper book of fairy tales. It's a work to treasure.
As a stand-alone book about the Fables world, this can be read even by someone with no previous knowledge of the series; however, I would recommended reading at least some of the main stories first, to start feeling interested and invested in all the characters before you read their life stories. As it stands, I was delighted to read about some of my favourite characters: Snow White, Reynard the Fox, Bigby Wolf, and Prince Ambrose, among others. Most of the stories revolve around the theme of revenge, and they're all pretty dark - darker than most of the issues on the main story, at least those I've read so far. Still, they are really interesting and well written, and the artwork is diverse and fitting to each story, so this is a wonderful addition to your library if you like Fables.
Hear snow white tell tales of well known fable characters like frog prince,snow white,ginger bread house witch and the 3 blind mice that you never heard before.
