RAGS AND BONES
Genre: Young Adult, Paranormal, Anthology
An outstanding compilation chillingly worthy of its Halloween season publication date. Thematically, this works beautifully; the theme of reimagined classics is broad enough that it never feels as though one is reading the same short story 12 times over, and each piece is linked in a way that’s natural and expected. Stand-outs include Neil Gaiman and Rick Yancey.
Familiar stories — some fairy tales, some literary classics — are reimagined by a dozen of children’s publishing’s most beloved authors including Gaiman, whose “Sleeping Beauty” is infinitely more enjoyable than the Grimm version, and studded throughout with illustrations by Charles Vess. (LITTLE, BROWN, Oct., 368 pp., $18.00, ISBN: 9780316212946, HC, 12 & Up)
