Can’t Catch Me and Other Twice-Told Tales
by Michael Cadnum
Available Format(s): Trade Paperback
This collection of deftly rearranged myths and fairy tales, including five original tales, rekindles the excitement of adored childhood tales. These witty, perceptive stories from an award-winning children’s author cleverly twist, turn, and veer off into unexpected, enchanting territory. Twice-told, the familiar narratives are newly revealed through the unusual perspectives of their supporting casts. There’s the giant’s wife who simply wants Jack to bugger off so she can continue collaborating on poetry with her sweetly oafish mate. A bratty, unrepentant Gingerbread Man sounds off on overprotective parents, meddlesome neighbors, and untrustworthy foxes.
