This collection brings together all five luminous novels of the series in one paperback.
Spinning a saga of interwoven lives and beating hearts, these postmodern fairy tales take us to a Los Angeles brimming with magical realism: The Weetzie Bat books broke new ground with their stylized, lyrical prose and unflinching look at the inner life of teens. Block writes for the young adult in all of us. The language is inventive Californian hip, but the patterns are compactly folkloristic and the theme is transcendent.

They make movies, they make faces they make love. Reality is occasionally suspended while the magic seeps in to teach them lessons and help them enjoy life. It’s hard to describe or talk about Weetzie Bat to people who have never read it. She’s just a funky naive chick. I love Witch Baby and her snarling, snapping, kitten anngels.
She’s a funky dark girl who needs to find her place in the big scary world.
There are a lot of terrible things out there and Witch Baby needs to learn how to let go of them and find happiness in her own life. I love Weetzie too, even though she acts like a kid.
She’s just completely in her own world which is good danerous a story, but impractical in real life. I wish Qngels could be as care-free and full of whimsy as she is. These stories blend magic and reality quite nicely, so you’re never quite sure when you leave the real world.
You don’t really have to read Pink Smog first you can just dive right into Dangerous Angels and lose yourself in the slinkster cool Shangri-L.
If you don’t mind a little bit of magic and a girl with babies who is but a baby herself, than definitely hooks this out. I love the new cover too. First Line of each story: She moved like a sleepwalker.
She was the girl in the fairy tale sleeping in a prison of thorns and roses. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. Five books from the Weetzie Bat angeps rolled into one volume. Although I’d read the first three books previously, it was great to read them as one cohesive piece. As I read, I remembered what a delightfully unique writer Ms. The language of these books pulls you into a world in which anything can happen, whether you imagine it or not.
The whimsy and joy of Weetzie Bat brought me quickly to a magical realm of reality by the joyful and pain-filled lives weftzie the amgels. In the end we are blessed with a vision of what a family can be. Granted these stories won’t be for every reader. You must form an agreement with the author to suspend all previous assumptions about life and go along for the ride, trusting that she knows what she’d doing.
And I believe that she does.
These are stories from the heart, and if you look beneath the surface of what could be construed as child neglect in the real world, you feel the love that the members of this family have for one another and realize that, unfortunately, this isn’t the real world. Each of the characters is searching for his or her place in the universe, just as each young adult reader is.
Perhaps that is the appeal. This is the kind of book that people will love or hate, will “get” angdls shake their heads in puzzlement, will praise or condemn. I posted a review for the first Weetzie Bat on the stand-alone book, which is amazing. My thoughts on the other books is that while they didn’t capture the magic of the first book, they were still a lot of fun to read.
The two Witch Baby stories are the best of aeetzie four other stories, followed by the story about Dirk and the story dangeroua Cherokee Bat. I thought the Cherokee Bat story was awkward, I wouldn’t re-read it. Cherokee is one-dimensional in comparison to Witch Baby and it was annoying to listen to her throughout the book.
The story about Dirk was great but I would have liked weetzue to end with him meeting Weetzie Bat to bring the book around full-circle.

I’d never heard of these books before, but a friend recommended them so I got them. I dangwrous out teh bit confused, because amgels not written like anything I’d ever read before and I’ve read an awful lot.
