There was something off with this book. I was looking forward to reading it because it was a graphic novel and involved fairy tales - so win-win, right? Unfortunately, I didn't end up liking it as much as I had hoped. I felt like the stories could have been handled better, I didn't like how they portrayed the characters or setting. I did appreciate how each story had unique illustrations, but I didn't care for the them, or the way they chose to tell the story. This book was just kind of a disappointment. I went into it with an open mind because I hadn't read anything like this, but the contents of Secrets, Monsters, and Magic Mirrors just did not sit well with me.
