Have you ever seen an anthology full of Mother Goose Rhymes being re-told....dark retellings, no less?  Fairy tales, yes.  Nursery rhymes, NO!

I'm intrigued and I want this immediately!  Plus, those authors! *flails*

I'm so glad the cover was revealed this week, or else I wouldn't even know this anthology existed!


Nursery rhymes sung sweetly can take us back to childhood. But deep inside many of those childhood favorites is… a hint of something dark. TWO AND TWENTY DARK TALES: Dark Retellings of Mother Goose Rhymes imagines dark and sinister things amuck in Mother Goose-land. From familiar rhymes, to some of the more obscure, TWO AND TWENTY DARK TALES is a must read for anyone who enjoyed Mother Goose rhymes as a child, but has come to love the darkest of tales.

What are you anxiously waiting for this Wednesday?
