A hilarious retelling of various fairy tales. The book parodies the classic well-known tales and puts a new spin on them intriguing readers. It would be a great pick for Storytime in libraries. The book has great illustrations as well. ( )

A wonderful book reflecting postmodern children's literature. One of my favorites! ( )

I would use this for primary if I just read one story, but intermedite for other stories since it is full of a bunch of different kind of stories. This book has a bunch of odd stories in it that make kids laugh so I would use this for laughs in class especiallly if someone was having a bad day.

First words
"I have found a kernel of wheat," said the Little Red Hen.
A long time ago, people used to tell magical stories of wonder and enchantment. Those stories were called Fairy Tales. Those stories are not in this book. The stories in this book are almost Fairy Tales.
