Summary: This is a fun collection of familiar fairy tales. Each story starts as the regular fairy tale we know and love, when suddenly it takes off and gets mixed up usually with another fairy tale. These new, silly revisions are combined with varied letters, capitals, and type to make for an unusual book. The combination of the text and the illustrations make a fun environment for the "fairly stupid tales".
