This book is a collection of 15 short stories done in graphic novel format.  The art varies with the stories.  These are cautionary fables and fairytales to help the reader see why you should listen to your parents, not marry strangers, not steal wisdom, or marry a lion if you are human.  All good lessons.  

The stories are fun, most with a sense of humor.  If you like legends and myths from other cultures, this is a fast and fun read. Some of the stories are a but uneven, but an overall good read.
