#LOOKwhatICanDO!

“The devil’s child for the devil’s wife” declares the note on the basket in the hollow of the tree. The woman of the forest now has a choice: she can leave the hairy, snouty, yellow-eyed baby to be eaten by lynx or wolf, or she can take it in and raise it as her own. The problem is that she is a witch and she knows absolutely nothing about mothering. So begins Michael Gruber’s original fairytale, woven afresh from many old familiar tales like a postmodern quilt from antique samples.
