Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Welcome to the fairy-tale world where Hansel and Gretel are horrible children who deserve to be baked and where Beauty is dismayed when her beloved Beast turns human. In the realm of the Brothers Grimm and the Sisters Weird, when the sky really does fall, Chicken Little becomes the leader of a religious movement, gets her own TV show, collects millions of dollars to build a theme park, and then makes off with the money.

These tongue-in-cheek interpretations of more than a dozen favorite fairy tales will have readers in stitches.

Review:

"The author reexamines a baker's dozen worth of classic tales, casting the characters in a different light (e.g., the Frog Prince regains his human form and eschews the snooty princess for a humbler maiden). Ages 8-12." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

Thirteen strange stories from the master of fractured fairy tales

Synopsis:

Presenting a twisted take on familiar fairy tales such as Red Riding Hood, Rumplestiltskin, and Hansel and Gretel--these fractured fairy tales are both humorous and unique, from their creative beginnings to their surprise endings.
