Twisted Tales of the Yellow Brick Road by A. Yasin

A little about A. Yasin first:

Aneesa Yasin is an author living in Yorkshire, the grandest county in the UK. Just a short distance away is Haworth, birthplace of the famous Bronte Sisters. She credits the auspicious location of her residence and a first time reading of ‘Wuthering Heights’ as one of the strongest reasons behind her love of writing growing up. After graduating from the University of York in 2017, she has turned all her energy towards fulfilling her two life long dreams: becoming an author and adopting a dog, a cat and a kangaroo. (Editor- She says she’s kidding about the kangaroo but I’m not so sure she is)

Diane Anderson’s Review: 5-Stars

Twisted pretty much describes this collection of fresh and innovative (if downright demented) retellings of classic childhood fairy tales. But these stories are not mere child’s play, as the author makes abundantly clear throughout the book. Fair warning is given both with a blatant announcement on the first page and in the quirky dedication to her parents where she warns them not to read these tales. For the rest of the reading population over the age of consent, and not prone to an overtly sensitive nature, these tales are an entertaining and humorous diversion on par with The Politically Correct Fairytale Book, but way darker, and in most cases, characters and archetypes completely turned on their heads.

Sherry Terry’s Review: 4.7-Stars

Twisted Tales of the Yellowbrick Road by A. Yasin is a wonderfully dark take on some old favorites in the Disney world. I like the stark cover, it fits these fairy tales perfectly. This book of short stories delves into some of our most famous and beloved children’s stories and twists them into perfect little nightmares.
