Look, I’ve been following this blog The Cabinet of Curiosities for several weeks now, and I just had to write this.
Every week, the four Curators (authors) post a story, and their imaginations and creativity will amaze. If you like children’s fiction, check it out. If you like things a bit dark, and creepy, and imaginative, and magical – check it out.
Seriously. Click the link.
My favourite stories from each of the Curators so far:
Quicksilver and the Stranger – wonderful and unusual witchy tale by Claire Legrand
Johnny Knockers – a whale tale, but so weird and strange, by Stefan Bachmann
Lucky, lucky girl – but she’s not a very nice girl! by Katherine Catmull
Fairy Cakes – and very creepy little fairies they are, too, by Emma Trevayne
There. Cheerleading over.
Head on over to their blog and you’ll see what I’m raving about.
