writingquotes
The ‘experimental’ writer, then, is simply following the story’s commands to the best of his human ability. The writer is not the story, the story is the story. See? Sometimes this is very hard to accept and sometimes too easy. On the one hand, there’s the writer who can’t face his fate: that the telling of a story has nothing at all to do with him; on the other hand, there’s the one who faces it too well: that the telling of the story has nothing at all to do with him.

Today in Cool Stuff in the Mail, we have Twelve Dancing Unicorns (out Sept. 2) by Alissa Heyman with illustrations by Justin Gerard. This hardcover children’s book is a spin-off of my absolute favorite fairy tale, “The Twelve Dancing Princesses”. 

Apart from Heyman’s adorable retelling of that beloved story and Gerard’s shimmery artwork — they honestly had me at “unicorns”.
