This book, with tongue firmly in cheek, takes political correctness to the extreme by re-writing children's fables. For example, "Once there were three little pigs who lived together in mutual respect and in harmony with their environment. Using materials that were indigenous to the area, they each built a beautiful house." Delightful satire.

Fun and twisted re-workings of classics like Cinderella, Snow White, and The Emperor's New Clothing. Cute little hardback gift book.

I am totally against political correctness and I found this book hilarious. It shows what happens when when give into all of this pc nonsense and although not all of the stories were great it's the fact that they were overly pc that made them that way. I thought the best stories were Red Riding Hood (till the end), Cinderella, Goldilocks and Rapunzel.
