This book will definitely make you laugh out loud! Do not read in public!!
It is a satirical play on every fairy tale ever written and will definitely make you laugh out loud. I started reading this while on a plane and had to put it away… I was definitely getting some looks from the other passengers around me!
Take everything you ever thought about a fairy tale and toss it out the window. This book has taken every preconceived notion and made it absolutely ludicrous! An absolute must read for everyone!!
When your chosen one is not who you would think, when the main character isn’t really the main character, the knight in shining armour is a girl in a chain mail bikini, and you toss in a drunken pixie, a bard bunny, a witch and a cheese obsessed wizard you get one heck of a tale to tell. Oddly enough, every one of these characters make the rest of the story believable, ha ha!
