Newfangled Fairy Tales, Book #1
Classic Stories With a Funny Twist
This collection of ten contemporary fairy tales puts a delightful new spin on classic stories and themes. King Midas is a workaholic banker who would rather play with his money than attend his son's Little League baseball games. The Big Bad Wolf is running a successful scam on Little Red's Grandma until Little Red catches him in the act. The Three Bears invade Goldy's house because their forest home is being stripped to build a super highway. A Prince refuses to marry any of the grumpy princesses who lost sleep because there were peas under their mattresses. A clever princess pays a dragon to lose a fight so she can marry the man she loves.
"Here is a new generation of fairy tales to make children laugh, not hide under the covers."
-Stephen Mooser, author of Young Marion's Adventures in Sherwood Forrest
"The dialogue is cool, the farce is wild, and kids will appreciate how the damsels in distress make their own happy endings".
