GUEST POST:

Hi, I am the evil grandmother from Red Riding Hood. Nice to meet you. I have a very special hobby. I like crime - dangerous, vicious, cunning and glorious. Crime is the best!

As Reut Barak quite accurately described me:
“A long time ago
in a faraway land
there lived a very evil old lady.
The evil old lady lived in an evil old house, where her sinful schemes would flourish and blossom!

Her career of wickedness started the day she was born
and went downhill ever since.

She was corrupted to the core, and vicious beyond all reason,
and her dark soul made a moonless night look blinding in comparison.
She would cheat for fun and lie for joy. She would swindle, frame, and otherwise deceive.

And she ticked the Ten Commandments one by one.”

That’s me. I want to tell you about my first crime.
Most people start with stealing from the candy store, but I was very mature for my age.
One of my friends thought of organizing a whole scam around poisoning a witch and steeling her magical broomstick, but I thought that it was too easy.
I wanted to steel from a King. I wanted to take his rich gold, and I wanted him to do it willingly. That was the kind of girl that I was!
Also, I wanted a scheme that would twist the heads of all the people around him.
Just for fun.

So I found myself a famous tailor. Someone who worked for kings before.
And I told him to make a king believe that there were magical clothes that only wise men could see, and that they cost a fortune.
In reality, we just made him wear nothing, but he would never admit that he couldn’t see the “magical clothes”.
He ended up parading down the largest street of his town, naked, and nobody said anything, because they didn’t want to admit that they couldn’t see the invisible clothes.
We made a fortune!
It was a great day.

I don’t do such things anymore. I have a much more fun task now:
I like to scare my granddaughter.
With wolf stories.

  5. Thank you for the amazing honest review:
    First of all, I like the fact that you noticed every one of the books as different in style, but certainly within the same magical world.
    And, of course these fairy tales are meant for teens and adults, not for kids :)
