Read full description of the books:
A cherub breaks all the rules when he spends one night with a girl on earth. A soldier is brought back to life by a toymaker, but he's not grateful. A Jewish girl falls in love and into danger to survive the Paris occupation. And a child begins the story of a Gypsy and a bear, who have to finish it themselves. With her blazing imagination, irreverent humour and arresting prose, Heather O'Neill - shortlisted for the Women's Prize and the Giller - twists old tales anew, setting them on the battlefields of World War Two and in the wilderness of downtown Montreal. More magical for their realism, more profound for their darkness, they are captivating, witty and wicked.
