Overview


More Brothers Grimm than Disney, My Beastly Book of Twisted Tales is filled with over 150 doodle and scribble activities to give budding young artists hours of fun. Like the other, best-selling titles in the series, My Beastly Book of Twisted Tales aims to push kids’ latent illustrative creativity into curious new directions by presenting them with silly scenarios and open-ended instructions.

The twisted takes on childhood favorites are delightfully mischievous and endless. Kids will dirty Cinderella’s ball gown, fill Hansel and Gretel’s mouths with rotten teeth after they snack on the witch’s gingerbread house, give a sunbathing Snow White a sunburn, decide what ingredients will go into their own magic potion, and more. After all, not all fairy tales have to end happily-ever-after!

The wide variety of activities — from drawing and coloring to cut-outs and more — help kids build confidence in their artistic skills and inspire their minds. Instructions are clear and concise, but still give kids plenty of reason to make use of their active imaginations. Illustrator Bérengère Delaporte’s loose, fantastical style sets up each impish scenario perfectly and encourages kids to respond to each page in a spontaneous and natural way.

i have a four year old who has been working on these pages for a couple of months. the directions are silly/gross, which she likes because it is out of the ordinary. mazes, cut-outs, coloring and doodle opportunities. i've been really pleased with the book. she's not old enough to read the directions, but that's what i'm there for. (this would be just as appropriate for older kids) we keep it in the car with a bag of markers for her to work in on car trips. she has not lost interest yet.
