I grew up with and love the Grimms tales but I also love the softer imaginings of Nicholas Stuart Gray that spin the tales into human space and away again. The Grimms has six brothers but that's just an odd detail. And anyway it's Ewen around which the story spins.

And a half. Well written but derivative. This author works best for me where the characters are fairy tale as while the story is fine I miss the depth and bite and class consciousness of an author such as Alan Garner. Still it started with a reference to Nineveh and I was visiting the brilliant Assyrian exhibition at the British museum only last week. Could my unconscious have used that to pick out a re-read after so many years?

Part of my past - and my present. I am the cat. I am the raven. I am the witch.

Really liked this and would recommend it. I love all things Celtic and old fashioned children's books so it is perfectly suited to me!
