    By Sheri Tepper
    Beginning with "Sleeping Beauty," the novel follows the adventures of the heroine, who avoids eternal slumber on a technicality. From there, she wanders through several fairy tales.

    The Eyes of the Dragon
    By Stephen King
    Stephen King tries something different in this dark fairy tale. Watch as King Roland's power fails, and his advisor, Flagg, pits Prince Thomas against his brother the heir, Prince Peter. This book is especially fun for fans of The Stand or The Dark Tower series, but can be enjoyed by anybody.
