Leaping Beauty - Chris L. Demarest, Gregory Maguire

These seem to really, really want to be funny, but they are not. They're not charming, either, or magical, or any of the other words for fairy tales I was hoping for. The twists were not interesting, the stories had little depth, and I think this might be the first short story collection of fairy tale retellings I have ever set down in my life, and I still feel no real regret over this.
