Y Here the writing styles Double Jeopardy exaccerabates bare bones writing and gimicky twists so most of these selections are cutesy and immatureNot all of the stories fall victims of these weaknesses Gaiman s Instructions is a brilliant and magical meta fairy tale and my favorite in the collection Cadnum s Mrs Big feelsmpty but nonetheless has a clever voice and fresh take on the subject matter Vaz s The Kingdom of Melting Glances is based on Portuguese legends which may be new for many readers and Koja s Becoming Charise is an mpowering story for black sheep despite hammering home its meaning and fairy tale aspects As this collection is such a swift read there s aspects As this collection is such a swift read there s harm in picking it up to read the better selections But on the whole A Wolf at the Door is a waste of time There s potential in the collection s premise but the selections are lackluster and some like Sherman s clich d The Months of Manhattan and Webb s gimmicky Ali Baba and the Forty Aliens are downright bad Spend your time on other better retellings I don t recommend A Wolf at the Door Instructions for reading this review1 This is optional Go find a copy of A Wolf at the Door2 Read Cinder Elephant by Jane Yolen Still opitional3 This is not optional Stand up and do a happy dance while chanting Jane Yolen Rocks Jane Yolen Rocks or Jane Yolen is GoldenThe best story in this collection without a doubt is Yolen s Cinder Elephant It is wonderful it is brillant it has a wonderful moral Honestly it is now my absolute favorite version of Cinderella ver It is worth the price of the book Honestly Buy the book for that one taleThis is not to say that the rest of the collection is bad Overall the stories are wonderful if a little on the sugery side at times It is after all a children s collection The second best story and the story without any true fantasy Cezanne and Provence elements is Becoming Charise by Kathe Koja This story is simply about becoming who you are It is a very touching storyWhile the main theme of the collection is re told fairy tales the majority of the collection features female protagonists so it is highly recommended for girlsMost of the tales are geared for children there are however twontries that seem slightly out of place Gaiman s Instuctions is a beautiful poem but it is hard to see a 8 12 year old liking it Strange considering the book has those ages listed on the back cover Maguire s The Seven Stage a Comeback is of an adult story in fact it is an adult story It is an interesting take on Snow White but I don t see how children will connect or Dark Voices even understand all of it Maguire s tale seems to be geared towards parentsWhile the collection is geared towards children some of the tales have darker tones Ali Baba and the Forty Aliens is one of these Thending is not Contested Reproduction entirely happyver after Nix s re telling of Hansel and Gretel has of the flavor of his Sabriel and is geared towards older childrenThe only false note in the collection is The Kingdom of Melting Glances This story seemed flatBut remember JANE YOLEN ROCKS.
