This is a collection of short stories by Tudor Jenks. Those stories are all written and composed in the way of a fairy tale, but they are not primarily aimed at children. The stories contain excellent satire, and are generally very funny and enjoyable. - Summary by Carolin (5 hr 50 min)

I didn't read all of the stories as quite a number of the narrators weren't to my taste. However, I loved each of the stories that I did listen to and hope to find more by this author. This book is described as being a book of fairy tales for adults. They were fun, silly tales without any real point to them except enjoyment and light parodying. There's nothing really adult about them, except for the fact that the humour might be lost on younger readers. So it really is a book for all ages.

I was not sure what to expect when I downloaded this but I am glad that I did. A curious collection of superbly read stories. Thank you to all the readers
