Summary

Fairy tales reborn! Inside this enchanting collection you'll find stories that are not-quite familiar. An assassin with a midnight deadline; a shoe store owned by Princeton Charming; a sleeping, ever-so-enchanted beast; an enchanted mirror (how do you define "fairest" anyway?). These are stories you've read a hundred times — but never quite like this.  
Written over a year, Upon a Time is more than just traditional tales. Each story marks a special day: Valentine's Day, Halloween, Easter Sunday and more. In the tales in Upon a Time, history mingles with fiction and myth becomes real. 
Upon a Time — stories of fantasy and romance, mixed with just a hint of magic.  
"‘Excellent,’ she says cheerfully and brings her wand down with a thwack!  Stars leap from its tip, out into the night, reaching over the ramparts and into the castle, earthing in the special glass of the slippers, that promptly... 
Explode! 
These are very well designed shoes. Not comfortable, but oh, so beautifully engineered."
