The Singing Rock & Other Brand-New Fairy Tales, Hardback Book

The Singing Rock & Other Brand-New Fairy Tales Hardback

Illustrated by Simini Blocker


A genie just wants a chance to grant a wish to the frog who accidentally let him out of his lamp--meanwhile, the frog just wants to be left alone.

A witch is tormented by the cheerful (and awful) singing of a persistent bard, but when she finally snaps and turns him into a rock, he just keeps on singing--somehow the power of terrible music overcomes all magic.

A wizard wants a pet. An ogre just wants to make beautiful art. Four original, wry, and utterly charming fairy tales comprise this new collection for young readers. With a deft, lively text from Nathaniel Lachenmeyer and eye-popping, painterly art by Simini Blocker, The Singing Rock is the perfect read for kids who love a good yarn--and good comics!
