Title: Two and Twenty Dark Tales: Dark Retellings of Mother Goose Rhymes
Author: a long list check out goodreads   
Pub Date: October 16, 2012 


"Nursery rhymes sung sweetly can take us back to childhood. But deep inside many of those childhood favorites is… a hint of something dark. TWO AND TWENTY DARK TALES: Dark Retellings of Mother Goose Rhymes imagines dark and sinister things amuck in Mother Goose-land. From familiar rhymes, to some of the more obscure, TWO AND TWENTY DARK TALES is a must read for anyone who enjoyed Mother Goose rhymes as a child, but has come to love the darkest of tales."



I love when authors come together to compile short stories. It's so much fun to read and if there is an author you haven't read yet you get a taste of their writing style. Plus I love fractured fairy tales!!

  3. I'm not such a fan of short stories, myself, but I love the cover for this one. And, I do recommend short story collections all the time to people who want to sample someone new, like you say.
