MDDR & ST Presents: A Review of The Seed & Other Fairy Tales By Joseph Hillenbrand

The Seed & Other Fairy Tales
By Joseph Hillenbrand
Genre: Short Stories, Fiction, Fairy Tales

Book synopsis

How do you measure yourself? By family, friends, enemies? By what you fight for? Or what you fight against? Follow the tales of those struggling to find an identity of their own. A little girl with a ghost as a best friend. A woman who hates wishes. A man lost in the secret kingdom of frog people. A girl at war with her god. And a pair of soldiers on a deadly mission of peace. The seeds have been sown. The storm is coming. Who will grow and who will drown?

Our Review

The Seed & Other Fairy Tales by Joseph Hillenbrand
My rating: 4 of 5 moons

Mom says:

this was a interesting collection of stories. Joseph Hillenbrand is a creative and kooky writer and I very much enjoyed reading this book with my 10 year old daughter. Most probably wouldn't read some of these tales to their children but we have a fascination with the dark and unusual, I think it makes for a more interesting and creative story.

my favourite of the stories was the Seed it was an amazing story and Joseph did an incredible job on it. There were some stories that made us laugh and many we could see play out in our head as they progressed.

Lily and I read the shorter stories together and I read the long ones myself then told her the story. I wanted to see how the different telling of the stories would interest her, would she be more interested and captivated because it was a word of mouth story or if she liked reading the story together more. I don't think it made much of a difference she was as much captivated by the Seed Story as I told it to her as she was when we read Two and One. We did have a grand time reading it though and for some time will be telling others of the adventures we had.

Lily Says:

My favourite story was the Seed story but I also like the Unwished story because the animals could grant her all the wishes. The Seed story was the best because if it wasn't for Rhea, Caroline wouldn't have defeated Hermione.

Although there wasn't really any difference between reading the story or telling it, I liked the reading because my imagination can be so much broader.

I also think the funniest story was Two and One because I thought it was funny how they got the sausages stuck to their noses.

I think Joseph Hillenbrand is a creative and talented writer who's dark and hilarious stories should be read far and wide.

Author Bio

I was born, raised and still live in the outskirts of Chicago. Every few years a move a little further west. Slowly inching my way to California. I love the big sky, the vast plains, the harvest moons of the Midwest.

I grew up reading comic books and playing G.I. Joe. Watching wrestling and listening to Led Zeppelin. I drew, I wrote, I strummed. I learned Stone Temple Pilots and I read Beckett. I grew and I withered.

I have spent the majority of my time in software - from support to development to management. And with my first book out now, I'm trying to get back to my roots: telling stories.
