Book Cover for Carthick’s Unfairy Tales:

A damsel in distress. An evil dragon. A concerned father seeking a saviour to rescue his daughter. A hero galloping off to the rescue – a knight in shining armour. Now THAT is the stuff of fairy tales.

But what if the father’s real concern is for the dragon’s hoard? What if the damsel’s reason of distress is the marriage proposal of her pompous and vicious saviour?  And what if the story is told by the horse who bears not only the overweight knight,  but also his heavy, shining armour all the way to the dragon’s lair and back, facing certain death in the process?

What if there was more – much more – to all your favourite fairy tales than met the eye?

This book chronicles not one, but seven such unfairy tales – tales told by undead horsemen and living cities. Tales of mistreated hobgoblins and misunderstood magicians. Tales of disagreeable frogs and distressed rats and bears baring their souls. Once you read these stories, you will never be able to look at a fairy tale the same way ever again.
