Beware! For witches, wolves and wonders lie within! Once upon a time, wolves charmed red-cloaked witches from the path, obsidian mirrors advised immortal queens, and an abandoned brother and sister called upon the ancestors to overcome evil encountered in the dark heart of the forest. Did you ever wonder about the real magick in fairytales? Because long, long ago, faerytales were spirit stories, tales of mystery, initiation, and transformation, and they were not meant only for children. In this collection of retold faerytales, including one bewitching original, Lucy Cavendish has reimagined 11 classics, restoring to them their pagan wisdom so that every story bubbles over with spells, potions, hexes, faeries, and all manner of magical beings. Boys grow antlers; enchanted horses talk from beyond the afterlife; mermaid mothers call to their daughters. Alchemy allows a psychic girl to spin straw into gold, spindles curse, and witches good and witches malevolent do battle within these spellbinding pages. This collaboration between Lucy Cavendish and Jasmine Becket-Griffith is a thrillingly witchy twist featuring faerytale-inspired spells, fascinating histories, and the spine-tingling secrets behind the stories of some of the world most beloved tales. Dimensions: 27.5 and 21 cm. Page Count: 272.
