Waiting on Wednesday #52

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine.

Once upon a time, there was a strung-out match girl who sold CDs to stoners. Twelve impetuous sisters escaped King Daddy's clutches to jiggle and cavort and wear out their shoes. A fickle Thumbelina searched for a tiny husband, leaving bodies in her wake. And Little Red Riding Hood confessed that she kind of wanted to know what it's like to be swallowed whole. From bloodied and blinded stepsisters (they were duped) to a chopped-off finger flying into a heroine's cleavage, this is fairy tale world turned upside down. Ron Koertge knows what really happened to all those wolves and maidens, ogres and orphans, kings and piglets, and he knows about the Ever After. So come closer - he wants to whisper in your ear.

I love fairytale re-tellings so this is on my radar for that reason, and I love Ron Koertge! The only thing is, this book is a hardcover with only 96 pages! We'll see how amazing those illustrations are ;) This will be released by Candlewick Press on July 10th, so make sure you add it to your Goodreads.
