"Well written children's tales and fables, with a hint of Middle Earth. The storyteller weaves a very charming world!
This book is the kind of compilation of short stories that you always wanted to have read to you as a child. They show humanities flaws, their wonders and triumphs. All with basic morals attatched.
Each one is well concieved and fully realized.
If you enjoy fantasy in the stylings of aesops fables with a completely original world, this is highly recommended.
High praises the Mr Van Sise for wonderful tales.
This book is creative and interesting. I have found that the stories have relaxed me after a stressful day at work. The book has made me realize that all I have been reading are bad news stories on the internet and in the newsapapers and reading stories like the ones in this book are refreshing and enjoyable. It is very good collection of tales. I recommend it highly.
I LOVED this book! My favorite tale was The Heart of The Ice King. The entire book is extremely well written and had so much detail I literally felt like I was right there. I have recommended this book to at least 100 people already!
The Wonderfultales truly live up to the title. The stories within this collection are entertaining and, best of all, completely original. While the stories will read like any of our favorite childhood classics, you will not find any cliches or over-done stories here. The characters and plots are fresh and exciting, yet the heart of the stories, the morals that speak to and touch us as readers, are familiar. I would highly recommend this book to anybody looking for a fresh new set of fairy tales that will leave them with the same, warm, familiar feeling.
These are indeed wonderful tales ... they seem familiar, and yet they are utterly new. Inventive, funny, moving ... van Sise creates a fascinating parallel mirror world with reflections both of classic fairytale worlds, and of the real world as we know it. Don't miss this one."
