Summary, etc.:
Just as fairy-tale magic can transform a loved one into a swan, the contributors to this book have transformed traditional fairy tales and legends into stories that are completely original, yet still tantalizingly familiar. The stories include a Rapunzel whose most confining prison is her loneliness; a contemporary rendering of the Green Man myth; two different versions of Red Riding Hood; a tale that grew out of a Celtic folk song; Sleeping Beauty's experience of her enchantment; two works inspired by the Arabian Nights; and more. Fairy tales told by Bruce Coville Gregory, Frost Neil, Gaiman Nina, Kiriki Hoffman, Kathe Koja, Tanith Lee, Lois Metzger, Christopher Rowe, Will Shetterly, Midori Snyder, Katherine Vaz, Jane Yolen, Pat York.
Genre: Fairy tales.
