This volume was a great addition to the series. While it doesn’t really fit in the middle of the volumes in any specific order, I highly recommend reading it just after The Good Prince. In these issues, we get to take a few peeks into the history of our favorite Fables like Fly, Snow White, King Cole and Bigby.
I enjoyed most of the art, which reached its peak (in my opinion) during Flycatcher’s tale. It was just simply beautiful. The issues are short, each ranging from a dozen or so pages to just one. I think this is the volume’s greatest strength. Instead of one big arc, we get to hop around and taste just a little of each beloved tale. By the end of the last issue, readers get a sense of the tragedy that hit a lot of Fables before they were able to find sanctuary. I highly recommend it to fans of the series.
