Our Intrepid Heroine

I'm a multitasking, knitting, cooking, voraciously-reading library worker who wants to spread her bibliomania as far as possible.

Castle Waiting

Castle Waiting, Vol. 1 - Linda Medley, Jane Yolen I'm a sucker for a good fairy tale, and this is a collection of them.

It's the story of a castle in the middle of nowhere whose origin resembles Sleeping Beauty. As the inhabitants' adventures (and misadventures) continue, the tone steers from established fairy tales to general flippancy, to clever ladies and pseudoChristian mythology. To bearded ladies and communal commerce.

I loved this book, which I pulled randomly off the shelf at the library. And now, I must go find more.
