Swan Sister: Fairy Tales Retold

Buy it Now!


Edited by Ellen Datlow and Terri Windling

"Swan Sister" is a delightful anthology of retold fairy tales as collected by Ellen Datlow and Terri Windling. There are 13 stories in this collection. Each with its own twist on old stories such as Rapunzel and Little Red Ridding Hood.

My favorite story came at the very end, and since this is an anthology, it's one time you can skip to the end with out ruining anything! The story is called "Swan Sister" and it's the story the book takes it's title from. It's a moving story of a sisters love, and I was crying by the time I was done reading it!

There are plenty of other great stories in this book to read. You'll find your imagination challenged as you work your way through them!

This sounds like a nice book! :)

Haha, and the capcha it's giving me is "sters", just two letters short of being really accurate- it's needs the "s" moved around and an extra "i". ;)

That does sound like a sweet book! If I get it, I'll make sure to keep tissues on hand.
