New versions for kids: Twisted Fairy Tales

Think You Know These Classic Tales? Guess Again!

by Stewart Ross, Samantha Newman, and Jo Franklin, Chris Jevons and James Hearne

The authors of this collection re-tell six fairy tales. The newly renamed stories are Cinder Elephant; Little Rude Riding Hood; The Three Little Narwhals; Octo-Puss in Boots; The Ninjabread Man; and finally, Snow White and the Seven Robots.

Each illustrated story retains elements of the original tale. For example, Cinder Elephant still has a wicked stepmother and two wicked stepsisters but the story adds silly elements. For example, Cinder Elephant’s fairy godmother has fairy dust in her ears and does not hear well so Cinder ends up with glass flippers, not slippers, when she wants a coach, the fairy godmother hears a roach…and so it goes.

This book will, I think be enjoyed by children who possess a sense of humor. It will help if they know the original stories as well.

Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher. All opinions are my own.

This book will be published on 01 Mar 2022 |

I love to read, recommend books and open the world of reading to others. I tutor to ensure that the next generation of readers will know the joys of a good book because their reading skills have improved. I am an avid reader, especially of mysteries and fiction. I believe that two of the world's greatest inventions were the public library and eyeglasses!
