In My Mailbox is a weekly meme hosted by The Story Siren. The idea is to share what books you got your hands on in the last week.
I had a pretty slow week as far as books go- which is fine- because I had a really busy week as far as homework and school goes! Only one book in my mailbox- by way of the library.
A new stand-alone FABLES NOVEL from award-winning and wildly acclaimed author, Bill Willingham.
This story stars Peter Piper and his incorrigible brother Max in a tale about jealousy, betrayal and revenge. Set in two distinct time periods, prepare to travel back to medieval times and learn the tragic back-story of the Piper family, a medieval-era family of traveling minstrels. Then, jump into the present to follow a tale of espionage as Peter Piper slowly hunts down his evil brother for a heinous crime, pitting Peter's talents as a master thief against Max's dark magical powers.
Based on the long-running and award-winning comic book series FABLES, PETER AND MAX is its own tale. Readers don't have to be familiar with the comics to fully enjoy and understand this book. (from goodreads.com)
This book was suggested by a book club member- I've jsut started into it and so far it is fabulous! It's a lot of fun to read about the real lives of some of the most beloved fairy tale charecters.
