    The Emerald Circus by Jane Yolen is a collection of short stories with an introduction to the works done by author Holly Black. I do believe some of these by Yolen at least have been published before but I was not familiar with her work so the entire collection was new to me. I'm not a huge fan of s...

    This is a mixed bag of stories, in all genres and styles, all combined by their (sometimes tenuous) links to original fairy tales, myths, and legends. These short retellings received a mixture of responses for me, with some being deceptively clever and poignantly written, to others falling short and...

    I wasn't sure what to expect, but I like fairytales and the cover screamed, "Take me. You love me."Many of them are tangential storylines based on children lit masterpieces or the authors: Peter Pan, Alice In Wonderland (a few inspirations), Wizard of Oz. Fun, clever, and the tone employed for each ...

    This collection gathers a number of Jane Yolen's short stories from other anthologies, except for one new story (a riff on Poe). Though Yolen most of her 300 books are for kid readers, I don't think this collection is for the young.I've read most of these stories over the past three decades, which a...

    ‘’You see, my dear ice witch, I have had the love of children from all over the world because of my stories. A child’s love is the perfect love, for it is given with a whole heart." After The Night Circus and its success, books that contain this word have multiplied by the dozen. Nat...

    This is a perfectly pleasant collection of fairy tales-with-a-twist – including"Wendy" leading a labor movement against Peter Pan and the Lost Boys, 80-year-old Alice returning to Wonderland, the "true story" of what happened to Dorothy when the tornado got her, imagined backstories to poems by...
