A Kinder, Gentler Telling of Fairy Tale Favorites

"Not since "Wicked" turned The Wizard of Oz in its head has a gifted writer put such a positive and creative spin on the scary fairy tales of our youth. Susan Lupien Meredith's Gram's Fairy Tales are the perfect answer to the question, "What can bring back reading as a relationship builder between children and the adults who love them?" I have read and loved all three of her "kinder, gentler tellings" of CinderElla, Little Red Riding Hood and Rumpelstiltskin and can't wait to recommend them and begin reading them to the children I love. Whimsical, smart and never saccharine they tell a story and gently instill a way of thinking. When CinderElla ended with the words, "The Beginning," I knew I was on to something fresh, fun and thought provoking."
