The book choice for November is Blackberry Blue by Jamila Gavin.
A stunning collection of six new fairy tales, Blackberry Blue pays homage to the heritage of traditional European folklore, with fresh and vibrant multicultural protagonists. There is Gavin’s take on Cinderella, Blackberry Blue herself, with beautiful dark skin and golden-brown eyes, who wears a gown made of flowers that will wither at dawn if she doesn’t leave the ball on time.
‘Prepare to enter a world of magicians, enchanted forests, talking animals and wicked witches…’
These joyful stories are a delight. – The Times
