's review

it was amazing
bookshelves: historical

A horrifying, beautifully written, startling and moving Holocaust story,
one of Yolen's best novels. Not fantasy, despite its marketing. It's about how people use storytelling, particularly fairy-tales, to interpret, deal with, and re-make their lives-- not always in a positive way. This is probably Yolen's Grand Central Theme, and it's particularly apt here.
