Any ideas where I can get a listing of the 33 chapters in The Book of Lost Things by John Connolly. Also I'm looking for a listing of the fairy tales/folk tales that Connolly makes ref. to in the novel.

I adapted the writing assignment to teach with the young adult novel The Book of Lost Things by John Connolly. My students displayed much more enthusiasm than they ever had for a personal narrative in the past. The fairy tale elements help with narrative structure and force them to include an explicit theme.
