Grumbles from the Forest: Fairy Tales with a Twist

By Jane Yolen and Rebecca Kai Dotlich

Published by Wordsong, 2013

This book of alternative history poetry is a collection of poems from the perspective of different characters in well-known fairy tales.  

I don’t find this book particularly original but I appreciate its premise.  This would be a good book to begin a poetry-writing unit for English or Language Arts teachers, and the teachers could encourage students to do what the authors of this book has done and write poetry from different perspectives or give a story an alternate ending.
