Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.
This is a delightful blend of dark, gloomy fairy tale, historical fiction, and horror. I don’t want to say anything more about it at this point, but I think I’ve found a real winner.
For now, enjoy these lines, which are a fine example of the emphasis placed on the importance of storytelling.
“When I make up stories I’ll write them down so they won’t disappear or be changed.”
Greet shrugs. “Then they won’t be proper stories, will they?”
Also, who doesn’t love a little girl who thinks this:
When I grow up I shall be a famous author like Carol Lewis or Elle Franken Baum, but the girls in my books will be explorers, they’ll fly planes and fight battles, not play down holes with white rabbits or dance along brick roads with a silly scarecrow and a man made out of metal.
Stay tuned. Gretel and the Dark looks like a star.
