Tales of the Peculiar
I have always loved the unconventional tales. The ones that had the miscellaneous and unlikely hero because there is nothing more exciting than rooting for an outcast. I guess the magic here lies in the fact that I always felt like an outsider and these stories made me dream of endless possibilities that were unattainable in the real world.
I love how in this gorgeous book from Random Riggs, Tales of the Peculiar, I get to experience once again the world of fairytales, similar to the original ones from The Brothers Grimm. These tales are weird, but in a good way, if you know what I mean. On top of all, you also get some great life lessons perfect for every age, presented in such a graceful matter that will bring a smile on your face.
“Passed down from generation to generation since time immemorial, each story is part history, part fairy tale, and part moral lesson aimed at young peculiars. These tales hail from various parts of the globe, from oral as well as written traditions, and have gone through striking transformations over the years. They have survived as long as they have because they are loved for their merits as stories, but they are more than that, too. ”
I guess that at the end of the day we are all in need of an amazing bedtime story.
