I didn't knew Reut but I have to say that, secretly, I always told theseclassic stories with a naughty or crazy twist just for fun and a goodlaugh, until I've read them. The level or sarcasm and wit remind meseriously.
These are NOT a kids books, soooo leave the kids out of these (or change some words).
The stories are short and written in a way that are perfect for a lightreading while in bed or while commuting in the train (because these areactually the times that I have) or whenever you want.
The great twist about the wolves is indeed a good "point of view" of our society." Alejandra
5 Star Review:
"What a pleasant surprise this book was! Smart and witty, refreshing,approaching this old and beloved tale from a different point of view!
It made me laugh a few times, it's an easy read on your smart phone app or Kindle device on the go, and it doesn't take long to read, some seconds per page! I even gave it to a female friend of mine to read it and sheloved it as well!
The jokes are aiming to adults so don't assume you can read this to your little ones - there are no pictureswhich might be a nice addition for future versions of other funny fairytales, maybe one or two.
I will be continuing my journey with the next Funny Fairy Tale soon!" Mr. M. Mavromatis

"Really fun to revisit this old fairytale in a whole new way. Great to seesomeone trying something new with digital books." CTPalin
"A light-hearted retelling of the traditional tale. The mirror is great fun!"L. Wade
"There once was a magician, a magic mirror, and Anagrola. Anagrola was unhappy and talked the magician into giving her his magic mirror, Shraga andlet her go marry a king which he did after a lot of debate. But Anagrola was still unhappy and focused on her looks and bothered Shraga all thetime. He finally told her that Snow White, the king's daughter from aprevious marriage was prettier than her. Anagrola gets jealous and tries to get rid of her but Snow White finds employment with seven dwarfsthat need some serious management. But when Anagrola learns Snow Whiteis still alive she sets out to try and poison her with several apples.
This is a cute retelling of Snow White. Personally I like the mirror andcould see him planning some way to knock himself off the wall in anattempt at suicide. Anagrola was spiteful and vain and takes it seriouswhen Shraga tells her Snow White, who is no beauty in this story, isprettier than her. Of course the dwarves are hilarious and the wholeusing an apple to try and kill the girl was over the top." JessicaBronder
"This is definitely a new spin on the old Fairy Tales I great up with. In this version We meet the magician whocreated Shraga the talking mirror, and learn more about the evil StepMother Anagrola.
This is a grown up version of the storycomplete with 1 f-bomb. I love how everyone has attitude, even themirror. At times the story is sad like when we see what the poormagician has become without his friend Shraga the mirror. My Favoritepart was when Queen Anagrola was trying to kill Snow White, and how many times it took before she finally got it.
This is a great series but not for the kids." Teresa
"Another retelling of the Grimm Tales...really? But what can I say, I'm a suckerfor a well-turned 'Tale (tee hee). But seriously a cute premise and some amusing teasers and taglines won me over.
So, this is amodern spoof of the original Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs. It's afable in the truest sense of the word...the short, simple story of theintelligent, not-quite beautiful but hard-working heroine Snow White...who is well-liked by everyone except her step-mother (the queen). The queen stupidly plots to kill Snow with a poisoned apple (see next section for more on this). The seven dwarfs are actually artisans each with theirown special talent. This is a source of much humor during the multipleattempts on Snow's life by her apple-wielding step mother.
The story pokes fun at some of the classic elements of the original tale.Snow White herself and her incandescent beauty...she's just ok-looking inthis version. The ridiculously vein step-mother and the poison apple she employs as a murder weapon. The Dwarfs don't fall for the old poisonapple trick...so she runs through a bushel or two before Snow finally eats one (tee hee). And lastly, the magic mirror. He's not just a rhymingenabler anymore...but a snarly hater who tells the Queen (Step)motherwhere to get off...lol.
Short, cute, and funny. D. Domain
"In this funny retelling Snow White isn't your average princess, the evilstep-mother has a chip on her shoulder and the magic mirror isn't taking any crap. This quick retelling had me laughing with parallels to thecurrent world, with a queen overly obsessed with beauty and receivingsarcastic and incorrect information from an overly sarcastic magicmirror and the dwarves being the smartest people around, the fairy taleworld doesn't seem too far removed from our current state. However, thefairy tale world does have a bit of magic that seems to be able to seteverything right" Stephanie
