Illana Barran was inspired to write this musical adaptation of the classic Gingerbread story while singing to her young daughter. Rather than simply reading her stories, she developed tunes and sung them. Her daughter would smile; her eyes would light up; looking forward to a song. Thus, every story became a lullaby at anytime, when a soothing remedy was needed. When Illana is not writing short stories and poetry in her Connecticut home, she enjoys sports, photography, painting, cooking for family and friends and travelling with her husband and children. She has a Bachelor of Arts degree from New York University, and GCE O'Levels from Oxford and Cambridge.
With every end comes a new beginning in the fourth installment of Soman Chainani’s New York Times bestselling School for Good and Evil series, Quests for Glory.
Join Sophie, Agatha, Tedros, and the other students as they begin a new era in the Endless Woods—The Camelot Years—where Evers and Nevers alike must move beyond the bounds of school and into the biggest, boldest adventures of their lives.
The students at the School for Good and Evil thought they had found their final Ever After when they vanquished the malevolent School Master. Now, on their required fourth-year quests, the students face obstacles both dangerous and unpredictable, and the stakes are high: success brings eternal adoration, and failure means obscurity forever.
For their quests, Agatha and Tedros are trying to return Camelot to its former splendor as queen and king. For her quest, Dean Sophie seeks to mold Evil in her own image. But soon they all feel themselves growing more isolated and alone.
When their classmates’ quests plunge into chaos, however, someone must lead the charge to save them...
Fairy tales have never been more irreverent or subversive as Hansel and Gretel learn to take charge of their destinies and become the clever architects of their own happily ever after.
