Straw and Gold: As a scullery maid, Mina's life is filled with ashpails and dirty dishes and no magic until the day the miller claims his daughter can spin straw into gold. The girl's sobs bring a strange little man to the kitchen door, who will show Mina magic if only she'll let him in. A retelling of Rumpelstiltskin.
Jack and the Magic Beans: When Jack's father orders him to sell his beloved cow to the butcher, Jack trades her to a poor man for a pouch of magic beans and gets more magic than he bargained for. A retelling of Jack and the Beanstalk.
Mirror on the Wall: Eight-year-old Princess Snow White saw her father murdered at dinner. At thirteen, she is the one in danger in this traditional re-telling of the Snow White tale.
The Princess Test: The Gold Fairy told Prince Irwin's parents that they should look for sensitivity in his future bride, so they devise a test- a dried pea placed beneath twenty mattresses. So far, every princess has failed, and Irwin has always been relieved, until the night of the storm and Princess Almira. But how can a girl who survived a storm at sea pass a test the most fussy of princesses couldn't? A retelling of The Princess and the Pea.
Snow's Bear: Rose Red remembers a bear visiting their cottage when they were children as a story, but her sister Snow White knows he was real. Now she's seeing him in the forest again, and a strange dwarf keeps turning up needing to be rescued but threatening when he is. A retelling of Snow White and Rose Red.
