Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: In this version of the Pied Piper of Hameln, we learn that the Pied Piper's curse lives on, and that the ones who steal children are the bitter parents who lost children themselves. (And who become “pied,” that is, have colorless blotches on their skin.)

The best parts of it are when it describes the actions of the parents and police trying to figure out what’s happening.

Con: There’s no proper resolution. The story abruptly stops and we’re simply told the conclusion.
