Do you love fairy tales? Do you love remixed tales? This collection of Yolen's short form work is a masterpiece. These aren't simply alternative endings slapped onto well-known stories. These aren't simply told from a different perspective. Each and every story is a masterpiece. The stories she fractures come not only as twists to familiar traditional fairy tales of the western European cannon, but also Greek myth, Asian stories, and Jewish folktales. Yolen also includes how she came to write each story along with a short poem. This is a must-read for those who love retold tales.
