Neil Gaiman, illustrated by Charles Vess
This just seemed a little too 'fairytale-esque' and not enough to keep me interested. However, I loved the illustrations! (The reason I picked this up in the first place not realizing it was 1 of 4)
The story was cute and sweet, but predictable (in certain areas). I did like that there were separate stories intertwined in one, but at times it got confusing as there was no separation between the perspectives. I also felt that there was very little in the way of character building, I didn't feel very attached to any character or feel much at all when reading this. That being said, I do plan to continue the series.
