A young prince who resists the spell of the evil goblin with the help of a raven, a king who turns into a bear to expel the monster in him, four brothers, each with a unique gift, facing a common dilemma—these are some of the characters in this collection of fairy tales, each story reflecting our deepest fears and desires. Join author Manfred Kets de Vries as he takes you on a journey where heroes and heroines face dragons, crones, lions and wicked stepmothers in their search for the elusive “happily ever after”.
