". . . And they lived happily ever after. "

So begins David LaRochelle and Richard Egielski's wacky original fairy tale THE END, which traces the courtship and marriage of a handsome knight and a beautiful princess . . . backwards!

Before we reach the beginning, we meet a temperamental giant, a beleaguered cook, a dragon who's scared of bunny rabbits, an oversized tomato, and an impish figure on a flying pig who just might be the cause of all the madness. It's a conventionally perfect and perfectly unconventional take on the fairy tale - guaranteed to convert the Grimmest reader to giggles.

A FairyTale told in reverse! Before we reach the beginning, we meet a temperamental giant, a beleaguered cook, a dragon who's scared of bunny rabbits, an oversized tomato, and an impish figure on a flying pig who just might be the cause of all the madness.
