Woodpecker Point and Othe. has been added to your Cart.

Woodpecker Point and Othe. Some of the most successful stories are both finely wrought and emotionally affecting: "The Woodpecker Toy Fact," in which a girl learns that an untruth can sometimes be the key to understanding truth; "Cave Amantem," a chilling twist on the Little Red Riding Hood fable; and "Goczka," which explores the feelings of a small boy caught in the midst of a war. The most ambitious effort, the title story, uses multiple viewpoints to trace the intricacies of family relationships over time.
