And neither its prince or princess are quite what we expect. Read it outdoors for maximum effect."--Kathe Koja, author of The Cipher and Under the Poppy "A brilliant premise executed with panache -- Vehlmann and Kerascoët's fairy world has the offhand cruelty of the Alice books and the offhand sweetness of Moominland -- Donahey's Teeny Weenies and The Borrowers can be felt here  too -- and yet it really it seems without precedent, every page a surprise in style and form and content."--John Crowley, author of Little, Big and Aegypt  Kerascoët’s and Fabien Vehlmann’s unsettling and gorgeous anti-fairy tale is a searing condemnation of our vast capacity for evil writ tiny. more
