I'm really proud to feature this book on my blog today.
I've been a huge fan of Pullman's since I read His Dark Materials over seven years ago!
Seeing that fractured fairy tales and retellings are all the rage, I think this
is a timely addition to anyone's collection!
If you're a fan of the original fairy tales, then this book is for you.
Every early trade review has been a starred rave: Library Journal called it a “fresh, sparkling collection, hand-picked by an author perfectly suited to the task.” Booklist called it a “wonderfully rich reading experience” and Publishers Weekly said “readers will enjoy not only returning to European fantasy’s roots but seeing how the tree still blooms.”
Please enjoy the book trailer below!
Also, for those who can’t wait until the November 12th on-sale date, three extra stories will be available early as a Penguin Special e-book called The Golden Key on October 16th. More info here.
