About this title

Synopsis:

A collection of fairy tales including a wooden carousel that comes alive through the magic of a troll, and a butterfly catcher who dreams he becomes a butterfly.

From Publishers Weekly:

Collaborators Kotzwinkle and Servello have again brought out the best in each other in this collection of stories, some of which were available in a previous edition. In "The Fairy King," a logger descends into the core of the tree and becomes king of the fairies for thousands of years, and then lives out his life wondering if it was all a dream. Carousel animals enjoy freedom in the title story but return in time to aid their former owner. "The Dream of Chuang" expands on the story of the wise man who wonders if he is a man dreaming of being a butterfly or a butterfly dreaming that he is a man. Each of Kotzwinkle's tellings is thought-provoking and entertaining, in a language reminiscent of all fairy tales. Servello's black-and-white pictures have a tenuous quality, conveying the other-worldly aspect of the tales.
