Overview

This collection of ten contemporary fairy tales--the second in the critically acclaimed series--puts a delightful new spin on classic stories and themes. Michelle Koszlowski desperately wants to be a princess until her wish comes true and she discovers what a pain royal life can be. The Little Tailor brags to everyone about his bravery until a giant comes along and teaches him a lesson. Rapunzel is held captive in a high-rise apartment by an urban witch who owns a pizza parlor. A postmodern wolf refuses to eat the bratty Little Red Riding Hood and her sickly grandmother. Hansel is so obsessed with candy that he steals Gretel's piggy bank and runs off to the Old Witch's Candy Factory.

Newfangled fairy tales is a great book to read when your just in a bad mood it'll cheer you right up. It starts off with Rumpelstiltskin, Private Eye, and ends with the just as wonderful Katie and the Dragon, its just 10 funny stories, its one of the only books I've read more than once and enjoyed just as much as the first time

You know, im not really sure. But i read girls to the rescue book one, and let me tell you, this guys got HUMOR! and, im guessing u read the description, right? Sounds good to me! So, maybe it IS worth the money. If you like funny twisted fairy tales. I just like them with magic (gods, fairies, etc.) Romance, humor, and explanatory epilogues.

More manipulated fairytales not exactly like you are accustomed to. You will get a laugh out of these. I suggest a sense of humor is required for reading them. Book #1 is also necessary to read.
