The wonderful writer Kate Forsyth(author of Two Selkie Stories from Scotland, amongst many other books!) has just written a lovely little review of Two Fearsome Fairy Tales from France(by Adele Geras and Fiona McDonald) in her summer reading round-up on the Booktopia blog–which has more than 100,000 readers!
