Grey Fairy/White Wolf
Three Classic Lang Tales Retold
K. Sherrerd Lowry
K. Sherrerd Lowry
… … A princess braves the unknown in a magical frozen land, to win the love of a fierce wolf-prince … … Two clever con men hoodwink kings and bamboozle a robber-gang, but encounter an obstacle neither can outwit … … A son is shocked to fall foul of a father’s appalling secret, and can escape its deadly reach only with help from an unlikely set of allies … …
These stories—fleshed-out and enriched from their brief 19th-century originals—are filled with magic, passion, daring, terror, trickery, reversals of fortune, danger, devotion, and triumph.
The original tales, from Andrew Lang’s 1900 The Grey Fairy Book, are included in this volume along with commentary and introductory notes. Lang’s twelve Fairy Books comprise 437 tales—most of which are unknown to modern readers. Many of those unfamiliar stories deserve to be as widely enjoyed as are Cinderella, Rapunzel, and The Snow Queen. Grey Fairy / White Wolf brings some of these fresh and lesser-known adventures to readers, offering vibrant, exciting, deepened expansions of “The White Wolf” and two other tales from Lang’s 1900 book. These stories will ignite a sense of the marvelous in readers of all ages.
“Here author K. Sherrerd Lowry takes on the difficult task of both unearthing and retelling some nigh unknown fairy tales. … What I enjoyed here is that the author managed to stay true to the original while also expanding the tale quite a bit. …The author's balancing act here is perfect.” -----Wulfstan, Vine Voice
