Seriously Silly Stories!! by Laurence Anholt

Wow, I'm posting late today!!  These silly story reviews are part of the fabulous Once Upon A Week!

Oh my word!  This retelling of Rapunzel is HILARIOUS!!

Filled with drawings reminiscent of a Roald Dahl book and some seriously BAD hair puns, it is nothing short of hysterical.  I haven't gotten a chance to read it to my kids yet, but I know for certain that Boo is going to crack up.

I know I did!

Again, HYSTERICAL!  Oh my gosh!

Love the bears and LOVE LOVE LOVE the resolution at the end.  This has to be the best retelling of Goldilocks EVER.

Seriously.  You really must go read this one.

HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend both of these, especially for kids ages.... oh, 3-99.  :)

  1. Those look adorable. I will have to check them out.

    And yes, we first "meet" last year for our reviews. Crazy, huh?

  2. Lol! I'll have to check these out. Sounds like my girls would love them.

  3. @ Andrea- It is crazy. Crazier still that I remembered that detail... :)

    @NotNessie- I think they would! I still need to read them to my kids.

  4. These look so delightful! There is something about fairy tales that inspire so many great stories, some of them delightfully spoofy. :)

  5. Delightful is an excellent word for them! I love spoofs!
