About the Author:

PATRICIA C. WREDE has written many novels, including Sorcery and Cecelia or The Enchanted Chocolate Pot and The Grand Tour coauthored with Caroline Stevermer, as well as the four books in her own series, the Enchanted Forest Chronicles. She lives near Minneapolis, Minnesota.

From Kirkus Reviews:

A collection of magical short stories by an author best known for her humorous Enchanted Forest Chronicles, in which spunky young heroines turn the knight-in-shining-armordamsel-in-distress paradigm on its head. Though mostly unrelated to the novels, stories such as ``The Princess, the Cat, and the Unicorn'' and ``The Sixty-two Curses of Caliph Arenschadd'' carry on the unconventional princess theme. The last story in particular, ``Utensile Strength,'' involves familiar characters from Wrede's series and features a rousing ``bake-off'' for knights, with the recipe for the winning entry included. Other pieces dig deeper into the eerie world of magic and the imagination. ``Stronger than Time'' is a wonderfully spooky Sleeping Beauty story, and ``Cruel Sisters'' imagines the complex psychological relationships behind the lyrics of an old song, in which a magic harp sings of one sister's drowning another. ``Roses by Moonlight'' examines human nature and, along with ``The Lorelei,'' starts off with a contemporary setting that intersects with the ancient world of magic. A thoughtful author's note answers the perennial question ``Where do you get your ideas?'' and closes out this varied and satisfying collection.
