Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Gr. 3^-5, younger for reading aloud. After being cooped up in that castle for a hundred years, Sleeping Beauty thinks she'll take the summer off and backpack through Europe. King Midas is a workaholic banker who neglects his family. Cinderella is a chamber maid who meets the fairy godmother (in drag) when coming out to dump the trash. Fractured fairy tales are now an established genre in picture books. This small paperback anthology is for middle-grade readers who know the traditional stories and can appreciate the playful parody and the contemporary spin. From ecology to gender roles, the messages are sometimes a bit heavy (wolves and bears, far from being scary predators, are helped by strong girls who conserve the forest), but the dialogue is cool, the farce is wild, and kids will appreciate how the damsels in distress make their own happy endings. In fact, these comedies could be a start for lively classroom writing projects and readers' theater. Hazel Rochman

This is a good short story. A different take on the same old story. It's nice to see the girl not be a victim like in most fairy tales.

I was looking for fairy tales when I came across this, so Ithought I'd give a shot. I'm glad I did, because, as my friend Hannah "Cuppcake" B. would say, I got my "daily dose of laughter".

Cute book for kids 8 and up, but it is a bit out of reach for younger kids. It would be great as a compare and contrast to traditional Little Red stories.

This is one of quite a few new fangled humorous versions of ancient fairy tales told by Bruce Lansky who felt that the ancient versions were ridiculous and weird. Readers will surely find that his versions are also weird, but they are clever, funny. and enjoyable. In this upgraded version, Big Bad Wolf disappears and his son Little Bad Wolf goes out to find him. He ignores his mother's warning not to talk to strangers, and he talks to Red Ridding Hood, a girl whose mother got a lot of red material for a very cheap price and made all of her daughter's clothes out of this red material. LBW finds his dad and the two discover that Red is not as dumb as they think.

I was expecting something more on the order of "The True Story of the Three Little Pigs," which I really enjoyed. Because of this, I found this story to be a big disappointment.

There were some clever little twists in the story, granted, but younger children won't understand them. Older children, on the other hand, will probably understand these twists, but I'm not sure they would be that interested in them. Adults will probably find this story only mildly entertaining.

Conclusion: I would not recommend reading this book to younger children, as they would not understand it. Older children "might" find it entertaining. Adults ... okay if you have some time to waste.

I absolutely love the twists and turns this story takes. A mix of the familiar and current affairs, Red finds herself saving everyone from themselves so that everyone can benefit in the end. The townsfolk, the wolf and law, and most of all Red, all learn valuable lessons.
What do I mean by that? I guess you will have read the story too.

Can't say more or I'd spoil this wonderful tale. It's one in a series of girl hero series.

The author gives an introduction by addressing his audience "Once upon a time when I was your age (and that was a very long time ago)..." He explains that he never thought fairy tales made any sense. He lists faults he found with The Princess and the Pea, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Sleeping Beauty to name a few. He goes on to explain that his goal was to retell some of these fairy tales in a much more sensible manner. The fairy tale that I read was a retelling of Little Red Riding Hood. The story begins with Little Bad Wolf, who is affectionately referred to as LB. The story proceeds with wit and humor. It ends with a lesson and a sense of "this was right." I would love to read Tocher's versions of some other classic children's stories.
