Wish I would have known
What others have said about this book is true, however I wish I would have known about the highly innapropiate part. In one of the stories that the monster tells the boy, a prince and a farmer’s daughter hide under the monster tree. I quote, “ but their passions got the better of them, and it was not long before they were asleep and naked in each other’s arms.” Later in the night, the prince murders the girl he just had sex with by stabbing her with a knife and frames the queen for the crime. I wish someone, somewhere would have mentioned this. I think it’s a big enough deal for parents to know this happens when deciding whether to let their teen read this book. There are also a few swear words. This has been said before, but it is a very dark and a very sad story.
