Grumbles from the Forest by Yolen and Dotlich - OPTIONAL

Yolen, Jane and Rebecca Dotlich Grumbles from the Forest: Fairy-tale voices with a twist.  Wordsong, 2013.  $17.  PICTURE BOOK. Content: G.  

Jane Yolen applies her genius to the thoughts of fairy tale characters and encourages her readers to flex their poetry muscles themselves.  A book like this is best after the students have been introduced to the originals – otherwise it is just confusing.  It would be a good ending activity for a fairy tale or poetry unit.
