The Woodcutter by Kate Danley
I’m a lover of all things fairytale…
I took several modules at university dealing in fairy tales, legends and myths. I’ve been reading the things since I was tiny and the Green and Lilac Fairy Books are treasured favourites in my bookshelf (they survived the Kindle cull!).
Beautifully written and combined
I have to say how delighted I was that Kate Danley was able to combine so many of my cherished stories – both obscure and well-known – into one comprehensive storyline with lovable characters and traditional story-telling methods. All without it feeling in any way overly contrived.
The Woodcutter was really well done
The book worked perfectly to bring together so many stories and make a new fairy tale with which to delight and enchant. Great stuff!
