Snow, Glass, Apples


Neil Gaiman - 1995
    A retelling of the Snow White fairy tale from the point of view of the "wicked stepmother." This version was a chapbook compiled by Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab and sold at Comic Con 2008 and on the BPAL website with all proceeds going to the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund.

Love Me, Love Me Not


Cameron Dokey - 1995
    For some it's the boy next door. For others, it's the Mystery Date--the one they'll never forget. When Kristen lost her twin sister Jeanine in a freak accident, she loses part of her soul. Then she meets Josh, who gives her a rose that never dies and wants her soul for all eternity. Featured at ABA and ALA.

Bit by Bit


Steve Sanfield - 1995
    Watch Zundel work his magic and turn his coat into a jacket, his jacket into a vest, his vest into a pocket, as it keeps Zundel company through his long and happy life. With its spirited, folksy illustrations, Bit By Bit is a heart-warming tale about the tradition of storytelling.

Gluskabe and the Four Wishes


Joseph Bruchac - 1995
    Each man has a different wish--and each man is given a pouch with instructions not to open it until he reaches home. Do they obey Gluskabe? This retelling is representative of traditional Native American teaching stories--entertaining, with a message. Full color.
