Summary
"Imagine that all the characters from the world's most beloved storybooks were real -- real, and living among us, with all of their powers intact. How would they cope with life in our mundane, un magical reality? The answer can be found in FABLES, Bill Willingham's celebrated reimagining of the venerable fairy tale canon. From Snow White and the Big Bad Wolf to Goldilocks and Little Boy Blue, the folk tales of old are reborn here as exiles living in the magically camouflaged New York City neighborhood of Fabletown."-- back cover of book one
