"Once upon a time. . . ," says the narrator of the first poem, and the reader is transported immediately into realms where words, like the faery flag of Dunvegan Castle, are "as true and warming as you let them be."

    My personal favorite out of this book of short stories is probably the last one. Coming in close second is The Making of Dragons, though all are charming in their own way. Beauty and the Beast just makes me both happy and sad. You have to read it.
