This is an original and humorous adaptation of classic bedtime stories to reflect more enlightened times. Garner removes any and all types of bias from these traditionally offensive tales and attempts to develop meaningful literature free from the influences of a flawed cultural past.
James Finn Garner has taken 12 time-tested tales and retold them with the newfound sensitivity of our times. Here's a snippet from "Little Red Riding Hood":
Leap into a fairy-tale world where trolls are "dirt-accomplished and odor-enhanced," witches are "kindness-impaired," and Cinderella wears a gown "woven of silk stolen from unsuspecting silkworms." We can only regret that Garner had to exclude "The Duckling That Was Judged on Its Personal Merits and Not on Its Physical Appearance" for space reasons.
