I FOOLED YOU
I thought it would be fun to see how different authors would handle the same idea, that of someone playing a trick on someone else. It seemed an original idea at the time. Then after the book was in the works, I realized that I was not very clever after all. From the beginning of literature be it The Bible, or Aesops Fables, Grimm's Fairy Tales, the Uncle Remus stories and on and on people or animals have been fooling one another. It's not a new idea but it's still fun. No fooling.
The authors included in this book are David A. Adler, Eve Feldman, Douglas Florian, Matthew Holm, Johanna Hurwitz (of course!) Ellen Klages, Michelle Knudsen, Carmela A. Martino, Megan McDonald and Barbara Ann Porte.
