“[Yolen is] the Aesop of the twentieth century” ― The New York Times

Fantasy legend Jane Yolen (The Emerald CircusThe Devil’s Arithmetic) delights with this effortlessly wide-ranging offering of fractured fairy tales. Yolen fractures the classics to reveal their crystalline secrets, holding them to the light and presenting them entirely transformed; where a spinner of straw into gold becomes a money-changer and the big bad wolf retires to a nursing home. Rediscover the fables you once knew, rewritten and refined for the world we now live in ― or a much better version of it.
