Book Review - Twelve Impossible Things Before Breakfast

Alice laughed:  "There's no use trying," she said; "one can't believe impossible things."
"I daresay you haven't had much practice," said the Queen. "When I was younger, I always did it for half an hour a day. Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.
Alice in Wonderland.

Jane Yolen has some wonderful fantasy books out there and they aren't your typical dwarves and elves type of fantasy, although these creatures may show up in the most unexpected places. I love her work and I especially love the book I just finished. It's a collection of short stories called Twelve Impossible Things Before Breakfast. It has, as the title suggests, 12 stories. My favorite was the final one in the book, Lost Girls. It's a take on the old Peter Pan story with many lovely twists. I highly recommend it.

Speaking of books, I just bought the book by Dave at Memory.Daydreams.Lapses. It's called Where the Night Animals Live and you should buy a copy and read it. It's a mix of poetry and prose from other publications and earlier writings collected in one place. Very cool :)

What???

"I am listening to this music on the internet. Can I print it out so I have it for later?"

BTW, is there an easy way to transfer old posts to blogger?
