This small book takes 'Political Correctness' to the extreme!For instance: "A Political Alphabet," and "Sleeping Person Of Better-Than-Average Attractiveness." Very funny!

I'm glad to see that others have enjoyed this book as it really was not my cup of tea. It took the simplest from of storytelling and twisted it into a Graduate level thesis. I can certainly appreciate this style of humor, satire, but it was all a bit too wordy for me.

A sequel, the author still seeks to eliminate 'biases and prejudices' from the tales we all read as kids. There are seven stories.
I enjoyed The Princess and the Pea, it being well-written and amusing. The stories are probably best enjoyed by English majors and others with a good vocabulary.
From The Tortoise and the Hare: "So confident was the hare in his sulocity prerogative over the tortoise that he decided to accept the invitation of one of the film crew and grant an interview about his mid-race thoughts, reminiscences of childhood, and hopes for the future."
