Another amazing installment in the Fables series. This one is more of a standalone that shows some of the backstories of characters. This volume is good to read before, after, or during the middle of the series; it doesn't spoil any of the series and helps flesh out some of the characters darker, more heroic, more foolhardy pasts. Each tale is illustrated by a different illustrator which helps keeps this volume fun and exciting. I loved all the stories in this collection and this is a must own for any Fables fan.
