The Witch's Boy

The Witch's Boy - Michael Gruber -This book is a really cool mix of old, familiar fairy tales the reader is familiar with and a new story.-There are twists on the fairy tales though so it's not quite what the reader knows.-Some of the fairy tales mentioned in the book: Sleeping Beauty, Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella.-The book had the potential to be really, really good.-For the most part it was fairly good but it was really long for what it was (400 pages).-If it was shorter, I would have liked the book much more.-It kind of reminded me of Shrek with the sprinkling of fairy tales in the story.Rating 2/5If you really like fantasy and/or fairy tales, pick this book up.
