Review of The Emerald Circus by Jane Yolen
In the interests of full disclosure, I was sent an ARC of this book by the publisher for review purposes.
Jane Yolen always has an interesting twist to her stories. In this collection you will be surprised, shocked, intrigued, and awed both by new tales and by new perspectives on old, well-loved tales.
Each story evokes its own unique space and time, and opens the imagination a wee bit more.
Don’t skip the story notes and poems at the end of the book. The poems are well worth the time, and the insights into how each story came to be are a brief look into the mind of a writer.
I give it 5 stars.
