Have you ever wondered what happened to ... Goldilocks, Snow White, Santa’s reindeer, or wondered why Cinderella’s sisters never get to tell their side of the story? Why was Scrooge the way he was? In this collection of short stories, you get the answers to all these questions.
Beloved characters in popular fairy tales have very short lives, but the reader is usually assured that they end up “living happily ever-after”. Have you ever wondered what became of them after the bedtime book was closed and put away on the shelf? In this collection of short stories you discover that there is indeed a life ever-after for such favorites as Goldilocks and Show White, that Cinderella’s stepsisters have their own version of what happened at their famous slipper-party, and how Jacob Marley first met Ebenezer Scrooge - and what happened to them before Tiny Tim came on the scene. Also included are two bonus stories - one about a strange visitor who came the night after Christmas, and one of a series of “Village Tales” in which the difficult problems in the world are somehow clarified.
