So many fractured fairy tales exist that finding a creative take on these perennial favorites is a challenge. But Penny Parker Klostermann not only rose to the challenge, she knocked it out of the park. A COOKED-UP FAIRY TALE is an ingenious mash-up of Sleeping Beauty, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Cinderella, with cameo appearances, orchestrated by Ben Mantle, of many other inhabitants of fairy tale land. Using a common thread in all three tales – food, Klostermann and Mantle create a delicious twist. When William’s love for cooking and dream of being a famous chef conflict with the realities of life in fairy tale land (dangerous stew and cantankerous customers), he makes one last ditch effort to impress Fairy-Tale-Headquarters. However, he’s never read the tales. Will his changes to some important ingredients ruin the happily-ever-after of three tales? The colorful, imaginative illustrations are engaging and full of surprises. Overall, a deliciously fun read aloud twisting of some familiar tales.
