Grimm and grimmer?

John O’Neill, publisher and editor of Black Gate web magazine, is reporting that author-artist Shaun Tan (Academy Award winning short film The Lost Thing, The Arrival) is publishing a book of illustrations of the sculptures he has created to accompany his re-imaginings of the classic Grimm brothers fairy tales like “Hansel and Gretel”.

Ripples in the pond of the Imagination, no doubt.

The Singing Bones has been published by Arthur A. Levine Books this past October, and it features an introduction by fairy-tale expert Jack Zipes and a foreword by modern-day fabulist Neil Gaiman.  Time to lay down that trail of bread crumbs to the local bookstore!
