  作者約翰席斯卡和藍史密斯兩人聯手將一般小孩都耳熟能詳的10 個童話,用惡搞的方式徹頭徹尾地嘲弄了一番。在「醜小鴨」的故事中,醜小鴨長大沒有變成美麗天鵝,只是成了醜大鴨。小紅帽變成了穿著「小紅運動衣」和大野狼比賽賽跑,看誰先跑到外婆家。薑餅人變成了臭起司小子。書中充滿嘲諷、戲謔、黑色幽默和希奇古怪的笑話,讀者需要多少熟悉原版故事內容,才能比較理解作者所玩的文字遊戲趣味。本書曾得到兒童圖畫書及凱迪克銀牌二項大獎。【文∕博客來外文館】

  The entire book, with its unconventional page arrangement and eclectic, frenetic mix of text and picures, is a spoof on the art of book design and the art of the fairy tale. The individual tales, such as he Really Ugly Ducklingand ittle Red Running Shorts,can be extracted for telling aloud, with great success. Another masterpiece from the team that created The True Story of the Three Little Pigs!
