Publisher Description

A #1 New York Times Bestseller and New York Times Book Review Editors’ Choice!

Legendary storyteller Stephen King goes into the deepest well of his imagination in this spellbinding novel about a seventeen-year-old boy who inherits the keys to a parallel world where good and evil are at war, and the stakes could not be higher—for that world or ours.

Charlie Reade looks like a regular high school kid, great at baseball and football, a decent student. But he carries a heavy load. His mom was killed in a horrific accident when he was seven, and grief drove his dad to drink. Charlie learned how to take care of himself—and his dad. When Charlie is seventeen, he meets a dog named Radar and her aging master, Howard Bowditch, a recluse in a big house at the top of a big hill, with a locked shed in the backyard. Sometimes strange sounds emerge from it.

Charlie starts doing jobs for Mr. Bowditch and loses his heart to Radar. Then, when Bowditch dies, he leaves Charlie a cassette tape telling a story no one would believe. What Bowditch knows, and has kept secret all his long life, is that inside the shed is a portal to another world.

Magnificent, terrifying, and “spellbinding…packed with glorious flights of imagination and characteristic tenderness about childhood, Fairy Tale is vintage King at his finest” (Esquire).

“Good, evil, a kingdom to save, monsters to slay—these are the stuff that page-turners are made from.” —Laura Miller, Slate

Fairy Tale

Excellent story. Hints of The Dark Tower here and there. A wonderful story.

Instant classic

IT’S AMAZING! You knew I couldn’t wait so I downloaded it at midnight - will pick up reserve copy today at the bookstore - the first couple chapters give you the background and move a little slow but then it takes off - like a roller coaster ride - you buckle in and go up the first climb slowly clacking along and after you reach the top away you go without a break until the end - it’s about a boy, and a dog, and a neighbor and something you think you’ve seen before but you really haven’t - that’s this book! Highly recommended ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Just the escape I needed…

Wonderful book. I felt like a kid, wild imagination in tact, on an adventure with my dog. I enjoyed every page.
