When an unspeakable tragedy befalls a family of traveling minstrels, they become stranded and left for dead. Here in the heart of The Black Forest, Peter Piper and his older brother, Max, encounter ominous forces that will change them both irreparably.

Thus begins an epic tale of sibling rivalry, magic, music, and revenge that spans medieval times to the present day when their deadly conflict surfaces in the placid calm of modern-day Fabletown.

Writer Bill Willingham deftly weaves a story of adventure and dark fantasy that will keep listeners riveted until the final, fateful last words.

Fans of the ongoing Fables series will uncover the secret histories of some of their favorite characters, including Bigby Wolf, Frau Totenkinder and Bo Peep to name a few.

    " It should come as no surprise to readers of the Fables graphic novels that Bill Willingham's writing style translates perfectly from the graphic novel format to novel-style narratives. He creates a compellingly interwoven story of the Pied Piper (of Hamlin fame) and Peter Piper (yes, the one who ate a pickled pepper), who were once brother but became foes after the family heirloom flute was passed onto the younger brother of the two. Willingham exploits the classic sibling rivalry to explain the back story of these two characters, even while preserving much of the original tales. It is most definitely a tale well told, and I was especially happy to see evidence of a Germanic fairytale world (Hesse) and the myriad of characters who created the legends of the Brothers Grimm. "

    " Pretty good, but I like the comics best :) "

    " The main reason I love this book is because I was a huge fan of Bill Willingham's 'Fables' comic for so long. I'm not honestly sure how someone unfamiliar would enjoy this tale, but if you're a fan: this is one of those rare books that has everything! Two likeable protagonists, a well-drawn antagonist, magic, mystery, action, adventure and a never-ending sense of fun and wonder! There's so much going for 'Peter and Max' it'd be a shame for the uninitiated to miss out. "

    " A Fables, non-graphic novel? Yes, please! This book follows Peter Piper and his estranged brother Max through their childhood and adult lives. Vivid descriptions and great characterization mean you don't even need illustrations to picture these characters in your mind. "
