The story that I intended to eat them is a fabrication. People will make up anything I did intend to observe them closely under conditions of stress, and more blood would have been very useful to me.
In the end, I would probably have let them go back home. Their father, my husband, was making my life as wretched as his own. In the end, it would have been a choice between having the children back and pretending (for a while) to be a happy-ever-after fairy-tale family, or getting rid of all three of them and moving on.
from "The Prince"
Suddenly I looked down. The current damsel was gloriously attired in something with pearls and ermine trim.I hardly saw her dress. My eyes fixed on her feet.
Glass! I could see right through her shoes!
I stopped immediately. She almost fell. I steadied her.
My eyes had not left her feet as they nestled like twin birds in their delicate little cages. Such feet! Oh, Stephen, you'd have loved them too. How I longed to put them into the footbath, to pour in the perfumed oil!
The music stopped. Everything stopped.

These eight chilling tales are based on the well-known fairy tales of the Brothers Grimm, Charles Perrault, and Hans Christian Andersen. Each offers perspective that is hideously fascinating, startlingly imaginative, and beautifully written. In a futuristic retelling of "Little Red Riding Hood" a young girl named Ruby inhabits a frightening world in which clever mutated beasts stalk humans. In a poignant version of "Jack and the Beanstalk" the giantess explains her people's urgent need for the ground bones of the lesser species they hunt. Fantastical yet terrifyingly believable, Priscilla Galloway's Truly Grim Tales will forever change the way readers view these familiar childhood stories.About the Author:
