A hilarious collection of upended fairy tales that will recast your classic family favorites in an all-wrong light

Remember those beloved fairy tales you read as a child? Where the damsel in distress is rescued by the handsome prince and then they all live happily ever after? Well Grimmer Tales is just like that. Minus the happy and the ever after!

In these pages you'll find classic tales twisted, tweaked, and riddled with morbid humor. Little Boy Blue blows his brains out, Pinocchio impales his dentist when asked if he's been flossing and Rapunzel's head comes off at its stem when her prince charming climbs the tower.

Get ready for your nostalgia-o-meter to flicker enthusiastically while shivers course up your spine at the all-wrong acts committed by the heroes and heroines of yesteryear.

What People Are Saying

From the Publisher
"Beautiful drawings for beautiful children and ugly twists of irony for ugly children. It has something for everyone!"
—Graham Roumieu, author of Bigfoot: I Not Dead and 101 Ways to Kill Your Boss

"Hilarious! Erik Bergstrom finally adds what these classic stories were missing: death, dismemberment and lambs with guns!"
—Timmy Williams, IFC's The Whitest Kids U Know

"Grimmer Tales is a hilariously original concept with charming writing and illustrations that will keep you chuckling throughout!"
—Ralph Tedesco, writer/creator of the graphic novel series Grimm Fairy Tales

"Delightful nuggets of homicidal whimsy. Perfect toilet read."
—Adam Wasson, author of The Self Destruction Handbook and Eats, Poops and Leaves

"Erik Bergstrom has created a joyfully morbid masterpiece! A real treat for souls who like some sinister in their saccharine. Graced with such twisted insight and a unique drawing style, Bergstrom's is a voice I am sure we will get to hear a lot more from in the future."
—Aurelio Voltaire, musician, author, creator of Deady the Bear.

    These are fun short shorts animated endings to famous fairy tales

    These are fun short shorts animated endings to famous fairy tales. Pinocchio has a nose that turns into a serial killer's weapon every time he lies (that goodness it is that body extremity rather than a lower woody) and Rapunzel whose hair proves how dangerous living with long locks can prove. Other entries involve Goldilocks tasting the porridge of gang members, Hansel and Gretel going into sugar shock with an insulin treatment facility nearby, and Mary and her lamb serving in Nam. These are amusing takes on the classics, but the reader needs to decide whether the price is worth about a dollar per minute of fun.
