Lyrical and magical, these four stories wind their way into your head like the leaves of the forests they describe. Ms. Koehler has done something truly remarkable - re-imagined ancient tales into something that feels both familiar and brand new at the same time. You will truly be swept away, as I was, and hope that you too might wander into the woods.

I finished reading this book quite a while ago but I totally forgot to rate it here on Goodreads. I loved this collection of fairytales; they are all well-known fairytales, but they are darker and sometimes have a twist that is different from the originals. I loved the poetic writing style and the way the author was able to bring new life to old tales. I also bought the next installment in the series (End to End) and hope it will be as good as this one :)

Jocelyn Koehler grew up in the wild, dark woods of Wisconsin, but now lives in a tiny house in Philadelphia that is filled with books, tea things, and places to read, sleep and write. She has worked as a librarian, bookseller, editor, archivist, cubicle drone, popcorn popper, and music store clerk. She has a love for fairy tales, folk stories, and weird, pretty prose.
