Underneath the Juniper Tree reprinted my short story Hannah, Gregory, and the Gingerbread CastleÂ in their February issue. (The story first appeared in a longer form in now-defunct New Zealand magazine Viola Beadletonâ€™s Compendium.) A modern-dayÂ Hansel and Gretel retelling, Hannah and Gregory run into the forest to save their father from mountain lions, bears, and bad directions. They come upon the Gingerbread Castle and other things instead.
Read the entire issueÂ here. The art that goes with my particular story is by Jo WuÂ and features two button-eyed (Coraline!) dolls.
