Brave Red, Smart Frog
A New Book of Old TalesBook - 2017
There once was a frozen forest so cold, you could feel it through the soles of your boots. It was a strange place where some kisses broke enchantments and others began them. Many said witches lived there, some with cold hearts, others with hot ovens and ugly appetites, and also dwarves in tiny houses made of stones. In this icy wood, a stepmother might eat a girl?s heart to restore her own beauty, while a woodcutter might become stupid with grief at the death of his donkey. Here a princess with too many dresses grows spiteful out of loneliness, while a mistreated girl who is kind to a crone finds pearls dropping from her mouth whenever she speaks.
