Secrets, Monsters and Magic Mirrors edited by Donald Lemke
How about a look at some good old classic fairy tales done in a new format?
Stone Arch Books, an imprint of Capstone, and Net Galley gave me ebook to review for you (thank you). The book has just been published and will be available at your local bookstore. This is the second in their fairy tale series.
The are several contributors to this collection and their individual graphic art skills add to the flavor of this new collection. The tales have been retold and have a fresh look, too.
Meet Rapunzel, Thumbelina, Snow White, Beauty & the Beast, and The Princess and the Pea in their new form. I really enjoyed reading this book. It reads quickly, but I'm sure any child will read it again and again.
Anyone who likes graphic novels would enjoy this book. It's written for the young, but this old one enjoyed the tales, too. Why not pick up a copy for yourself and check it out?
