What members say
Jane Yolen never fails me for a reading choice. Her stories are always full of magic, compassion & a sense of childlike wonder, even in the tales obviously meant for adults. These tales, some new takes on old classics, others completely new, are sure to entertain & give warmth & light during cold, dark times.
