Book Review: More Unfairy Tales by T.F. Carthick


A knight rescues a damsel in distress. They marry, the whole kingdom rejoices, and everyone lives happily ever after. The end.

Or at least that’s what Official sources say. But what tales do insiders tell? What secrets lie buried deep inside Davey Jones’ Locker?What, dear reader, about The Unfairy tales?

The stories the Knight-in-Shining-Armour and the Damsel-in-Distress have never wanted you to know. Tales which Fairyland had kept locked up in secret and thrown away the key. Until our rogue bard went back in time and ferreted out skeletons hidden within secret cupboards of desolate mansions.

Our fearless crusader of truth and justice brings to you the second volume of revelations from fairyland.

You will find five more unfairy tales hidden within the pages of this tiny tome, the sequel to Carthick’s Unfairy Tales. Stories of elves out to decipher the ways of men and dwarves seeking to reclaim their own histories. Of spurned witches and lost wolves. These stories are going to change everything you have ever believed about fairyland and give you a peek underneath the gossamer threads of glamour and magic peddled by the Fae.

My Review:

As a child, I loved reading fairy tales, and when I heard about T.F. Carthick unfairy tales; I 

was not only interested but also curious, especially since I missed reading his first book. 

The author has taken five fairy tales 

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
The Beauty and the Beast
Red Riding Hood
The Shoemaker and the elves.

And turned them around. The characters are the same, but their personalities have been 


I enjoyed the fresh perspective of the author's take on the above stories. The language is 

simple, and the stories are entertaining, mainly since childhood, I have been used to the 

same old storyline. 

This book is recommended not only for adults but also for young adults who would love a 

fresh take on the plot as these characters have been with us since we started school.
