RED BOOK OF GROWN-UP FAIRYTALES
In a world of happily ever afters, fairy tales are known to have princes and princesses. But what happens when the princess is from another planet, or the prince is a hacker fugitive? In these five ADULT fairy tales, the boundaries go beyond the stories we grew up with. Perhaps an android can learn to love, or the hero is a wolf trying to save his mate. And sometimes, the happy ending cannot be found until the second time around.
These are the red hot fairy tales Granny would have warned you about … if she hadn’t been so distracted by the big bad wolf’s seduction. Move beyond the Grimm Brothers and saccharine sweet animation for fairy tales that will make your heart pound and your temperature rise.
