Ballad Alert

Jeremy Love's BAYOU, Volume 2, includes a very scary dude: Stagolee. The story also includes visual allusions to Robert Johnson. On one hand, the devil and on the other, the man who legend has it made a deal with the devil for his musical prowess. I am looking forward to Volume 3 to see how the story develops.

Just to draw attention to the posting on SurLaLune Fairy Tales Blog on a picture book version of Sadko, one of the ballads (and books) I highlight in Stories From Songs.
