Troll's Eye View: A Book of Villainous Tales

Troll's Eye View: A Book of Villainous Tales - Garth Nix, Michael Cadnum, Nancy Farmer, Jane Yolen, Ellen Datlow, Catherynne M. Valente, Ellen Kushner, Nina Kiriki Hoffman, Kelly Link, Terri Windling, Midori Snyder, Wendy Froud, Joseph Stanton, Neil Gaiman, Delia Sherman, Peter S. Beagle, Holly Black Fairy tales and poems retold or reimagined through the eyes of the villains? I'm game. And with a cast of contributing authors that includes no less than Neil Gaiman and Kelly Link, I was certainly interested in checking out this anthology--regardless of the target demographic. Kids and kids at heart should all enjoy some very fun stories that look at those old fairy tales through a new lense and new angle. Two favorites for me among this collection include Kelly Link's "The Cinderella Game" and Holly Black's "The Boy Who Cried Wolf."
