As a child I was always drawn more to the darker and sadder fairytales like Hansel and Gretel, The Little Match Girl and The Ugly Duckling. And this book sang the same tunes that I loved growing up so I was enveloped in a cozy mist of nostalgia.
Since I really enjoyed the Wicked trilogy, of course I had to read this novella! This will be a short review for a short book though. If I write too much about it I’ll probably spoil the whole book. So I hope you’ll enjoy this mini review^^

I honestly did not know this was a retelling and I have never read King Lear so I will not be commentating about it. But I will say that I’m now curious about King Lear because this book was wonderful! //Grimmsnaught
