Product Description

Fairy tales and nursery rhymes -- we feed them to our children with nary a thought as to their macabre origins. But investigative reporter Blake Sullivan is determined to get at the real story. He penetrates the Dark Forest in search of the legendary Mother Goose, who seems only too willing to relate the grim history of her mysterious homeland. But the truth he uncovers is more outlandish, more chilling, more unbelievable than his darkest imaginings. 112 pages, trade paperback, illustrated.
Fairy tales and nursery rhymes -- we feed them to our children with nary a thought as to their macabre origins. But investigative reporter Blake Sullivan is determined to get at the real story. He penetrates the Dark Forest in search of the legendary Mother Goose, who seems only too willing to relate the grim history of her mysterious homeland. The half-blind Mother Goose is a storyteller without peer; she weaves for him a bizarre tapestry of betrayal, revenge, predation and murder, peopled with fantastic creatures whose supernatural powers sharply magnify their all-too human passions. For the most part, the subjects of this weirdly cosmopolitan kingdom look and act like citizens of the modern world, but when provoked they are quick to rise up and ¿go medieval¿ on someone, to horrifying results. Blake¿s mission is simple: dig into the stories, find whatever truth is behind them, and report it to his readers. But the truth he uncovers is more outlandish, more chilling, more unbelievable than his darkest imaginings. 112 pages, trade paperback, illustrated.
