“Entertaining . . . Touching . . . A cool, PG-13 revisiting of classic stories [that] feels a bit like tossing a Disney princess into the cast of HBO’s Girls.” —Kirkus Reviews

This can easily be read in about 2-4 hours because there isn't as much text (and I'm a slow reader!).
I think this would make a great "pass-it-on" kind of gift.
Overall, I would not recommend sharing this book unless you understand or know something about the characters in it. Otherwise, it won't be as interesting.
This book just has simple 1-page stories. The page numbers don't seem to be in any order at all (it might say page 5, then 7, then 5 again, etc.). This book also came in a dust jacket, which I honestly find to be annoying (but I did tape it still).
Tim Manley was my high school English teacher and I'm so proud of this accomplishment of his. I'm a senior in college at Sarah Lawrence and remain in contact with him when we can. I was able to see this project grow through the tumblr as he got more and more recognition for his work so it's great to see this final product. This book is near and dear to my heart and I'm telling everyone I know about it so Manley can get the support he deserves. Highly recommended! A great read!
It's extremely hard to fathom exactly how much I love this book. Every time I read it on my commute, I always end up having to stifle my laughter as to not get any awkward looks from strangers. Even if you grew up hating fairytales, there is no way you would not laugh at this book. Manley has taken a cliche and turned it into something else, something as unique as it is unusual.
This book is absolutely hilarious. It's a great book to keep on a coffee table as a conversation piece. Each page is illustrated with a small phrase, paragraph, or poem about different Fairy Tales characters - with a modern twist. I greatly enjoyed it, so much that I found myself literally laughing out loud.
There is some language in the book, so I would say it is not safe for young children to read, but use your own judgment. All in all, a great book. I can see myself buying this for several of my friends as gifts.
