Everyone thinks they know the real story behind the villains in fairy tales--evil, no two ways about it. But the villains themselves beg to differ. In Ellen Datlow and Terri Windling's new anthology for younger readers, you'll hear from the Giant's wife ("Jack and the Beanstalk"), Rumplestiltskin, the oldest of the Twelve Dancing Princesses, and many more. A stellar lineup of authors, including Garth Nix, Holly Black, Neil Gaiman and Nancy Farmer, makes sure that these old stories do new tricks!
What I am going to do is do small reviews on all of the story's of: The Troll's Eye View. 1st story is: The Wizards Apprentice! here is my review:
In the 1st story there is Nick and he was treated very poorly at is uncle's house. He barley got any food. He really only got like 2 hours of sleep! Sometimes he did not eat at all or sleep at all! So he ran away and his uncle caught him. But one night he ran away and did not get caught and he went to the evil Wizards Book Shop and stayed there. Will his uncle find him or will he stay at the Wizards Shop?
My favorite person is Nick cause he is brave! i am not a big fan of the story but it was ok.
