Written with engaging deftness, wit and a real lightness of touch (which doesn't disguise a frequent sting in the tail), Rosie Little's Cautionary Tales is the Brothers Grimm updated by Angela Carter. Gorgeously clever, engaging, smart and funny, Rosie is a heroine who will win readers' hearts - this is a sheer delight for readers. Danielle Wood's first novel, The Alphabet of Light and Dark, the Vogel winner in 2002, was highly praised, won awards and was much admired by readers, going on to sell over 10,000 copies (making it a bestseller in Australia's small market of only 19 million) and still selling steadily today. Rosie Little's Cautionary tales for Girls won Danielle Wood the 2007 Sydney Morning Herald Young Writer of the Year Award.
