THE ROSE AND THE BEAST: Fairy Tales Retold
In a starred review, PW wrote, "Block sets out to revisit nine fairy tales, filling her stories with gritty, even headline-grabbing issues. The darkness of these conflicts and subjects proves the strength of the magic she describes: the transfiguring power of love." Ages 12-up. (Aug.)
Note: Additional reviews of children's books can be found in the Children's Religion section (p. 82).
