Overall Grade: A
Troll's Eye View is a collection of short stories and poems by various prominent fantasy authors (Neil Gaiman, Holly Black, and Peter S. Beagle, to name a few), told with the aim of presenting a fairy tale from a different point of view: the villain's. The stories are diverse in style and telling--but consistently entertaining.
It's impossible to give a traditional review of this book due to the number of stories, but we highly recommend it. If you are a fan of fairy tales, a fan of villains, or just a fan of good literature, be sure to pick this up and find your own favorite bad guy. (Ours was the witch from Sleeping Beauty, a la Neil Gaiman...)
Possibly objectionable topics: fairy tale violence, including: abuse, murder, eating of children. (If you can't stomach the original Brothers Grimm, you would do well to avoid this, basically.)
