My Review:

We’ve all wondered what happens to all those socks and missing items in the dryer. We’ve walked into the kitchen in the morning and stared in disbelief as items are placed in odd places. It’s not the kids who are up to no good but those mysterious kitchen imps.

This collection of short stories, while for the whole family, will make adults chuckle and nod their heads in agreement. These modern-day fairy tales take the reader away to a magical world where mischief abounds, and anything is possible.

After reading Butcher’s erotic dark fantasy series, these stories are a breath of fresh air. The writing style is highly humorous and reminded me of Roald Dahl. Highly recommend!

Favorite Story: The Joy of Socks. Just when I think I have a handle on the mystery of missing socks, I discover it’s not my dryer’s fault at all but these inane creatures creating havok. I laughed several times throughout this story.
