About the Book
Just when Sir Jasper Gowlings thinks it is safe to return to his humble abode, he is horrified to find the terrifying and bad-tempered old hag Felicitatus Miserius waiting for him—with yet another collection of blood-curdling fairy tales. Frozen with fear, Sir Gowlings knows he has no choice, for those who fail to learn from the messages contained within the tome will be doomed. As he begins to turn the yellowed pages, Gowlings knows his future is at stake. Once upon a time, when witches and goblins still roamed the world and all the animals chatted amicably, a frog promises to do anything to win the hand of his fair lady. A spoiled boy must sell his cow in order to buy a pair of ruby red designer shoes, and a little swan who looks more like a goose must prove to all the other feathered creatures and the king that he is the best swan around. Unfortunately, none of the characters anticipate the surprises that await them. Terrible Tales 2 is a delicious, zany collection of upside-down fairy tales sure to delight both children and the young-at-heart with their unmistakable life lessons and secrets to happiness, love, and success.
