While reading a children's Fairy Tale book one evening to my three year old Granddaughter, her joyful reaction to this magical big book took me way back to when I was a child and reminded me what was so great and compelling about them.
Larger than life books with lots of pictures and big text that would sing to you as you romped through the pages. Stories full of the strangest people and beasts that could talk and most bizarre going's on in the weirdest of worlds, all stretching the imagination to the outer most limits. Veiled behind those lyrical words lurks the moral tales of good and bad, courage and greed, destruction and rebirth. And then there was the artwork that could be so fluffy and nice that then on the next page be something damn right frightening and deeply dark, but always intrigues and draws you further into the timeless nature of these magical places.
So here for Adults (definitely not for children) is a short and simple tale for us grownups to consume that harks back to those times when we were all three. Are you sitting comfortable, gin and tonic in your hand, then let us begin this never-ending story of Change, Love and Sin.
