Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
C.S.E. Cooney likes to take those old fairy tales we all know and look at them from a new angle, more often than not revealing that the story we didn't hear might be so much richer. Bluebeard tells his side of the tragic tale, men dream of being kidnapped by a robber bride, a skeptical reader falls in love with Beowulf ... you'll be re-playing verses in your head long after you shelve away this book. Fans of Goblin Fruit will recognize a handful of these poems, but others have never been published anywhere. If you have the chance, find a podcast or go to an event where Ms. Cooney is reading, because you absolutely want to hear her voice in your head while you read these seventeen poems.

Smart and playful, like the beautiful strangers lurking in your dreams, who will break your heart only as much as you want it to be broken.
