Far Out Fairy Tales
There are five stories in this book. Cinderella is Ninja-rella. She wants to be the prince’s bodyguard. The illustrations were good. It’s completely different than the original Cinderella story, which is good. (At the end of each story, they explain the differences between the stories.) The Red Riding Hood story is funny. Red Riding Hood has super powers. The grandma is President of the United States. The wolf is a werewolf. I like this version better than the original version. “Super Billy Goats Gruff” is my favorite. They eat mushrooms that give them superpowers in a video game. (I’d choose the yellow mushroom. It turns you into a ninja.) Little Gruff is a ninja. Middle Gruff is a wizard. Big Gruff is a warrior. There are a bunch of boss fights and final bosses. It’s funny.
The drawings are great. I like them best when they are normal goats. I like the changes the authors made. Whoever would think of Snow White as a space explorer? The author has an active imagination. I like the puppy robot best. The robots are cute. It’s hard to think of Hansel and Gretel as zombies. The pictures in Hansel and Gretel were good. People who like mixed-up fairytales will like this book.
