This novel is a delightful mix of traditional not so well known fairy tales. I love fairy tale retellings and this one was pretty good. Sometimes the mix of fairy tales seemed a bit much but they all played in well with the story. This book was very entertaining with a few chuckle moments. The main character Johnny is a hardworking guy who thinks money will fix his life. However, he eventually comes to the realization that there may be more important things than money. The whole story goes by pretty quickly with a lot of different adventures. It's a modern fairy tale retelling so be prepared for a mix of the modern world with the magical one. I would recommend this novel to those who like fairy tales and enjoy a quick and fun novel.
