careful May 16, 2008
be careful here. i ordered a book that was supposed to be in "very good" condition and it arrived with bits of food stuck on the pages and animal bite marks in the corners. thankfully i contacted them for a refund and the sent me another book that was in good condition at no additional charge. that was nice of them but it still made me weary.
You've got to be kidding me...... Feb 22, 2008
I read this book when I was 10-11 years of age. Its sarcastic humor and wit was the perfect "transition" book for me to move into pre-teen and teen novels, and eventually adult literature. Anyone reading this to a child below 9 years of age is potentially confusing them and depriving them of a great book.

I have purchased this book for every child in my family and as gifts for other children it is funny and sarcastic in a nice way and adds spice to fairy tales I love this book
stinky cheese man rules Oct 10, 2007
This is an excellent book. Great imagery and a fun read. The stupid tales are great for young imaginative minds.
Hilarious! Sep 3, 2007
They read this book to me in grade school and I thought it was very funny. Not your traditional fairy tale stories but its great. Little kids may not get the full humor but even a college grad like myself still enjoys it. Plan to read it to my children when they are older!
