Author: Ray Friesen
Series: N/A
Recommended for: Grades 3-7
Pages: 80
Call Number/Link:  J Fiction Friesen, R.

Synopsis: All the beloved fairytale classics are kinda… broken. I mean, they don’t have ANY Dinosaurs, Robots, Zombies or Space Aliens in them. I don’t know what those guys from olden days were thinking. So! I took all those cherished children’s stories, added some crazyness, and vastly improved them! Probably!
Fairy Tales I Just Made Up is jam-packed with weirdo fun, including The Dumbest Love Story Ever, Magical-Science, and Bacon Helicopters.

Comments: I grabbed this book because of the funny title and it was exactly as advertised. It is illustrated by the author of Pirate Penguin and Ninja Chicken. The first story made me laugh out loud (literally!). It is an odd retelling of tales that reminds me of the ways that younger kids think, full of non sequiturs, silly jokes, and very literal interpretations (goldilox can turn things into gold, Robin hood is a bird). Each story is illustrated by a different artist, one is done in clay (IlluClayted), and in “The Princess and the Whatever” all the artists drew a different princess. The only problem with this book is that it might be too wacky! There are some recurring characters to look out for throughout the stories that are drawn in the different styles. This might be a funny read aloud book for an older kid’s bedtime.
