"Abundantly magical." --Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Imagine Hansel and Gretel's story from their teacher's point of view, when Gretel submits her report of, "What I Did in the Holidays, and Why Hansel's Jacket Is So Tight." Learn the story of how Rumpelstiltskin was used by a greedy girl who wanted to marry a prince in "Straw into Gold." Find out what was really underneath all those mattresses the unlucky princess had to sleep on--and who the prince was really in love with--in "The Prince and the Problem."
