The Singing Rock & Other Brand-New Fairy Tales

by Nathaniel Lachenmeyer

First Release:

October 2019

ISBN: 9781596437500

A genie just wants a chance to grant a wish to the frog who accidentally let him out of his lamp --meanwhile, the frog just wants to be left alone. A witch is tormented by the cheerful (and awful) singing of a persistent bard, but when she finally snaps and turns him into a rock, he just keeps on singing --somehow the power of terrible music overcomes all magic. A wizard wants a pet. An ogre just wants to make beautiful art. Four original, wry, and utterly charming fairy tales comprise this new collection for young readers.
With deft, lively text from Nathaniel Lachenmeyer and eye-popping, painterly art by Simini Blocker, The Singing Rock is the perfect read for kids who love a good yarn --and good comics!
