You guys- I broke one of my cardinal rules of reading with this one. 

That rule is never, ever read a book that features a dog. Because it’s usually heartbreaking. (Thanks Where the Red Fern Grows!)

But this audiobook was so worth my rule breaking! This isn’t a classic Stephen King horror story. As the title says, it’s a fairy tale. But King reminds readers that the original fairy tales were dark and violent stories before Disney rewrote them. This is a hero’s journey to a magical land that’s been taken over by evil & cruelty. Main character Charlie is a high school kid who only wants to save the life of an old dog. This desire leads Charlie to another world, an ancient evil, and an epic adventure. 

The storytelling and plotting are masterful. The characters are familiar amalgamations of classic fairy tale characters. Charlie is a great kid-smart, helpful, and kind. But he’s not perfect and he knows it.  And Radar, the dog, is perfection. 

This story is pure escapist fun. The audiobook is excellent and I highly recommend listening to it. Seth Numrich’s narration is pitch perfect and superb. This is definitely in my top ten books for the year. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
