Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Just as fairy-tale magic can transform a loved one into a swan, the contributors to this book have transformed traditional fairy tales and legends into stories that are completely original, yet still tantalizingly familiar. andlt;BRandgt; In this book you will find: andlt;BRandgt; and#149; a Rapunzel whose most confining prison is her loneliness andlt;BRandgt; and#149; a contemporary rendering of the Green Man myth andlt;BRandgt; and#149; two different versions of Red Riding Hood andlt;BRandgt; and#149; a tale that grew out of a Celtic folk song andlt;BRandgt; and#149; Sleeping Beauty's experience of her enchantment andlt;BRandgt; and#149; two works inspired by the Arabian Nights andlt;BRandgt; and#149; and more andlt;BRandgt; In the follow-up to andlt;Iandgt;A Wolf at the Door,andlt;/Iandgt; thirteen renowned authors come together with a selection of new and surprising adaptations of the fairy tales we think we know so well. These fresh takes on classic tales will show you sides of each story you never dreamed of.
