The Green Man Review...

...says this about
Margo Lanagan's 'The Goosle,' a tragic but compelling 'Hansel and Gretel' redux, is a definite read for anyone interested in fairytale retellings. This one's dark, perhaps better suited to original stylings of fairy tales, before they were repackaged for modern consumption in a sparkly new world with all the sharp edges trimmed off. "The Goosle" retains its sharp edges. That's what makes it interesting.
