Young children won’t understand the humor, but many children in the middle grades who are already familiar with the classic tales will love the satire. Their parents will, no doubt, be amazed at the creative twenty-first century scenarios. Each of the story has an original illustration appropriate to the new version. For lovers of fairy-tales, this one is a definite change of pace.
When I asked my daughter what she liked about the book, she said, "The jokes and the pictures." She also said she liked that each story taught her things. Unusual words and circumstances were described in interesting and witty ways.
The artwork is top-notch, too. Each story has one illustration that captures the story perfectly.
PS--my personal favorite in the book was the Hansel and Gretel retelling, "Don't Eat the House!" But my favorite illustration is that of Rapunsel sitting amid a sea of hairspray cans with various household objects trapped in her long locks.
This funny little book is a great read for sharing with the grandchildren. Highly recommended!
