Others split off from their brethren and became new fairy-kin that dwell in houses, like redcaps, hobgoblins, and gremians. They lived in human villages and had spent their days pestering or helping. human folk for so long that many. human folk for so long that many forgot the woods and hills and swamps, and so their own children never learned of these places. So it came that one day, after knocking loose a plow from a horse and breaking the axle of a wagon, a gremian followed an unsuspecting soul into the dark woods, leaving the predictable village he’d known all his life.

When I was a child, I had a large book of fairy tales that I grew to love. It wasn't the safe, cartoony versions we're all familiar with today. In my book, Cinderella's step-sisters cut off parts of their feet to try to get them to fit into the slipper. In my book, the Pied Piper drowns all the children when the townspeople didn't pay.

Perhaps my mother would be seen as a bit warped for introducing these kinds of stories to me as a young child, but I don't think she was. Fairy tales were never meant to be safe. They were cautionary tales set in extraordinary settings with real consequences, both good and bad. The stories would always keep me awake, thinking about them long after my mother had kissed me goodnight.

When you take away the wildness, the grittiness, or the fantastic mystery of these stories, something vital is lost. All that is left is sugary pablum--easy to swallow, sure, but lacking any real substance.

Darryl and Julie Fabia have done an excellent job of recapturing that vital spark in these original, fantastical tales. Not all of the stories have happy endings--and not all of them should. These tales remind us that life is wild, sometimes dangerous, and that there are things yet that go bump in the night. Like those stories I read so long ago, they too tickle my imagination and leave me thinking about them long after the story is done. They have wound their way into my psyche next to the Three Billy Goats Gruff and those other beloved tales of my childhood.

When I was young my grandfather read to me from his 1886 fairy tale book. The stories were graphic and harsh. They instructed children that in the world you must find ways to save yourself because it is folly to rely on others. As a little girl I loved the Disney version, but I learned from grandpa's tales. You can't always beat the game, and sometimes your best isn't going to be good enough, but sometimes if you are cunning enough you will come out on top.
This book took me back there! These stories are well written and raw. There is no candy coating that hides the lessons people need to learn. They are not always fair or sweet, but they are engaging and what fairy tales are meant to be. I can't say enough good things about Don't Let the Fairies Eat You. It was fresh and yet truly classic fairy tale telling. This book is for anyone who loves fairy tales as they are supposed to be told. Now I'm going to buy their next book, but first I'm going to read a bit from grandpa's big book of fairy tales 1886 . Read this one. It is worth every second and penny spent.

'Don't Let the Fairies Eat You' is a great book and a very enjoyable read. It brought back all the nostalgia of when my Grandmother would read me stories from several of her books that she had from when she was a little girl, although they weren't as dark and grim as these. Being a fan of horror, and dark humor, I found most of the stories in this book to be very memorable to the extent that I can probably retell from memory after reading a story once. These are the kind of stories that are the true origins of our modern Fairytales, dark, grim, and twisted tales that are the reason your grandparent's still lock their doors and windows. Heck, these are the bedtime stories that the boogeyman tells his children at night. So don't let the cute cartoon cover fool you, the contents of this book are of a mature and well written nature.

I have to give this book a 5 out of 5 since I haven't been able to find another of it's kind that just seemed to appeal to both my inner child and horror fan.

Not your everyday fairy tales.... Superb!!!

This book, I can't compare it to anything I have ever picked up. The stories are wonderful, my boy and I spend nights taking turns reading the dark tales. I'd recommend this to anyone that enjoys a story about the fae and is keen to the idea that there are more gruesome things in the forest than one may first assume. <3

Loved, loved, loved this book. I thought all the stories were very well written, and a lot of them made you think. Absolutely loved it. I got it for free, but would definitely have payed for it considering how much I enjoyed it. Would recommend it to anyone
