Happy Book Birthday! Today is the release day for TWO AND TWENTY DARK TALES: DARK RETELLINGS OF MOTHER GOOSE RHYMES from Month9Books. I'm excited to read these retellings, which should prove to be especially fitting so close to Halloween. Be sure to check it out!
"In this anthology, 20 authors explore the dark and hidden meanings behind some of the most beloved Mother Goose nursery rhymes through short story retellings. The dark twists on classic tales range from exploring whether Jack truly fell or if Jill pushed him instead to why Humpty Dumpty, fragile and alone, sat atop so high of a wall. The authors include Nina Berry, Sarwat Chadda, Leigh Fallon, Gretchen McNeil, and Suzanne Young."
