Recipes for Gingerbread Children
by Michael Beyer
A very clever book. It is easier to describe in terms of ‘Not’
- It is not a children’s book
- It is not an adventure story
- It is not a light and fluffy fairy tale
- It is not a piece of naturist fiction.
But it is all of these things at times as Grandma Gretel weaves her tales for the children that come to her cottage for cookies and stories.
This book is most certainly well written. It delivers moral judgements with all the force of the Brothers Grimm.
