Troll Bridge: A Rock and Roll Fairy Tale by Jane Yolen
January 31, 2012
In my opinion, a creative retelling of a fairy tale can cover a multitude of sins. This one combined elements of "The Twelve Dancing Princesses" and "The Billy Goats Gruff" and was written in rock and roll type lyrics. The thing that truly caught my admiration was an inclusion of Dairy Princesses, mention of the Minnesota State Fair butter heads, and Lake Superior. My loyalty to Minnesota forced me to love this one. It is a light fairy tale retelling with a strong heroine and a fun story for tweens and above.
