Some of this stuff will be repeated, talked and joked about by young boys and girls for a long time after reading it, especially the collection of mischievous takes on classic children stories and nursery rhymes toward the end of the book. What fun kids will have after reading this book. I am so jealous! Mr. Elias Zapple, we all know you are as old as dirt, maybe even older. Why oh why didn’t you write this thirty years ago!? What great memories this would have made! But oh well, I have it now! And I’ll read it again and again!!
Get this book!
They are outside now building a slug farm. So, great result. I would definitely recommend Zapple's Rhymes to children with a quirky sense of humor.
I look forward to reading the Duke and Michel series too.
For those who enjoy fractured fairy tales, Roald Dahl's Revolting Rhymes and have an equally wicked sense of humor and tolerance for the cleverly bizarre this book is one to read.
The fairytales are new takes on old classics. If you've ever wanted to see Cinderella get her revenge or Little Red join forces with the wolf ala Bonnie and Clyde, then you will love this book. Check it out or be slimed!
This book is top shelf!

These fun poems my become a new guilty pleasure for your library avoidant offspring. For .99, how could you go wrong?
We read Duke and Michel before, so were confidently expecting something delightfully wild. And it was, maybe even wilder, and maybe even funnier, although it's impossible to compare one hilarious read to another. Even my oldest, a 12 years old non-reader, was grabbing my Kindle to read some more.
What can I say? I love this author's humor, love the subtle sarcasm, love the illustrations, love the way he seems to never be afraid of crossing some lines. I'd say this book is as much for the grownups as it is for the children, and teens, and pre-teens. The humor and twists and turns alone would warrant all ages' attention.
Off to look for more books by this author!

The second half of the book is my favourite - a new take in a very humorous and often almost sarcastic way of writing about popular fairy tales such as Cinderella. This household is currently fairytale mad - and these rhymes certainly are a breath of fresh air for me! It's not often that a children's book leaves me, as an adult, giggling hopelessly!
It's easy to get sucked into the little world that Elias Zapple has created in his books. None of it is logical or real to life - but that's the joy of his writing. I've only just recently discovered his books but this one is no exception - it's really good.
No, not really, this is mental.
Great fun poems with loads of disgusting terms that will have a child laughing loud. Well worth a read.
