“Marjorie Tesser’s twenty-first century take on traditional myths and fairytales is charming, inventive, and full of bold ideas and images that turn the tables on the originals. Well-written and sometimes comic but always serious, these are women for our times!” —Hettie Jones, author of Doing 70 and Becoming Hetty Jones
“Tesser takes readers into the untold stories of fairies, Dorothy in Oz, Alice in Wonderland, Red Riding Hood; the mothers, grandmothers, princesses, and queens each offer their own take never celebrated in Mother Goose and other gatherings of popular fables. The Magic Feather takes a feminist perspective reminiscent of Anne Sexton’s Transformations and the contemporary anthology The Poets’ Grimm.” —Tara Betts, author of Arc & Hue
