Bun reviews Recipes for Gingerbread Children by Michael Beyer
A very clever book. It is easier to describe in terms of ‘Not’
It is not a children’s book
It is not an adventure story
It is not a light and fluffy fairy tale
It is not a piece of naturist fiction.
But it is all of these things at times as Grandma Gretel weaves her tales for the children that come to her cottage for cookies and stories.
This book is most certainly well written. It delivers moral judgements with all the force of the Brothers Grimm.
