Told through one-page stories and sculptures, Tan tells he beginnings of familiar tales. Each one, eerily creepy on its own, is accentuated when put side by side. With a brief history of Grimm’s fairy tales and a forward from Neil Gaiman, readers are guided through a brief look at each of the tale on a unique way. The sculptures pictured are detailed and incredible to look at. Text is true to the original fairy tales and evokes the readers’ imaginations.
