Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
The creators of Mockingbird here serve up an appetizing series of "Once upon a time..." short takes that lead whimsically into one another. The title character offers a disparaging commentary on the initial entries ("What's going on?"; "This is ridiculous"), then decides he will take over the writing. The ursine hero puts himself in the spotlight as he rescues Red Riding Hood and her grandmother from the wolf, bests the troll under a bridge and ties up a dragon that is "eating everything--left, right, and center--and setting fire to things." As part of his reward, the victorious bear receives the princess's hand in marriage, though the pigtailed royal will have none of it ("Anyway, I'm not marrying a bear"). In turn, she pens her own tale, in which she shirks footmen, French maids and princes and moves "into an apartment with a couple of friends, started a career in television--and went shopping." In addition to the villains, a penguin and a sausage who aspires to be a chef play supporting roles in this kid-tickling, episodic narrative that mixes familiar and never-before-seen characters (a sausage that cooks?), plot twists and bustling watercolor and pencil art into a silly and satisfying stew. Ages 6-8. (Feb.) Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|

Illustrations and words come together to create variations on traditional nursery rhymes in a fun and imaginative manner. Children will laugh hearing the stories they know, twisted and turned into scenarios that lead from one new and silly ending to another. Perhaps the only criticism is that adults will easily find humor in some scenarios that may not have any meaning for a child. For instance: "Once upon a time there were three bears, a cottage, some porridge, a girl named Goldilocks, a police chase, a trial, and six weeks' community service." But overall, the book provides an opportunity for adult and child to have fun with a new and lively version of fairy tales. It may just enliven the reader's own creative juices! Who knows: Little Red Riding Hood might just find herself with a new ending that many of us will applaud! 1999, Candlewick Press, Ages 5 up, $15.99. Reviewer: Kathleen Orosz
School Library Journal
K-Gr 2-After a few false starts-"Once upon a time there was a bear. The End"-a young cub spins his own tale. He casts himself as the hero, rescuing Red Riding Hood, punching out a troll causing traffic problems, putting out a dragon's fire, and freeing the captive princess. At this point, the princess pipes up and gives her version of events, followed by "The Wolf, the Troll and the Dragon." The silliness just keeps escalating with various characters making their own smart-aleck asides and observations. The King goes on TV and offers a refrigerator, a three-piece living room set, and a Toyota as prizes for slaying the dragon. The book design adds comedy with its variety of typefaces and pictures of different sizes popping up from all angles. To best appreciate the humor, listeners should know the stories being parodied. The lively watercolor cartoons will appeal to young children, but the book is too long for them and there are many pictures and words that would need explaining. Fourth graders could enjoy the humor and situations, but it is unlikely that the title and format would attract them. However, for the right reader, this will be a hit.-Marlene Gawron, Orange County Library, Orlando, FL Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
