Overview

Politically Correct Bedtime Stories by James Finn Garner

In a collection guaranteed to provoke both laughter and thought, 14 timeless fairy tales are revisited and reworked to become relevant fables for more modern times. These hilarious adaptations satirize and sanitize the sexist, racist, nationalist, ageist, sizeist, ethnocentrist, and phallocentrist biases of classic bedtime stories. Familiar exploits of beloved characters are related from a respectful, prejudice-free perspective: the Emperor is no longer naked in his new clothes but “is endorsing a clothing-optional lifestyle,” Snow White escapes to the cottage of “seven vertically-challenged men,” and Goldilocks is an ambitious scientist studying anthropomorphic bears. With a redesigned jacket and a previously unpublished story, this expanded edition is sure to appeal to readers of multiple generations who find political correctness is as topical as ever.

I got exactly what I was looking for - stories that were familiar but fixed to fit the way some folk think today. Great stuff

A few were really fun, at the worst still chuckled at the language. A short read to help me make it to 100 Books in a Year (my sister's idea) without all of them being novels you can use as a doorstop.
