I don’t know what it is about a fairy tale that makes for so much fun in a poem. But it really works, especially in the hands of a terrific poet—which Anne Overstreet is. I’m so glad I happened to have dinner with Anne at a writer’s retreat, and learn that she was a poet. The rest, as they say, is history. A little bread, a little butter… sometimes leads to a little book.
