James Weis
2d edtion, The Not-So-Grim Folk Tales
James Weis, author

Children/Young Adult; Sci-Fi/Fantasy/Horror; (Market)

These 24 short stories weave bits and characters from various fantasy stories into new stories. Cinderella and Snow White are there, but not in the same way with the same story. In addition to characters and events from the Grimm brothers, the tales borrow from more modern authors such as Porter, Poe, Pullman and Rowling--even from Star Wars. Thus, characters go back and forth in time, enchanted frogs and ravens appear, enchanted mirrors become enchanted paintings, a glass slipper becomes an enchanted earring, an animagus becomes a magimorph, and the Force is with us--only it's not the Force.
