I like the story about how and why this book exists vs. reading the actual book. But, I did love the triple jointed arm. I can appreciate its use.

3 different endings. I can see how in life this was a fun experience. You tell a story, it's too sweet so you make it darker, then darker again. The original listener of the story idea, mentions the story around an illustrator friend and her friend says I can draw that. This book is the result of that.

Take note: he says proceeds go to charity. That may tell you a lot about why anyone would even publish it.

I adore Patrick Rothfuss' novels for adults, but this is a hard book to like... It's pretty clear from the outset (and the cover description) that this is not a book for children, and it is meant to invoke the dark undertones of the original fairytales and folklore. Knowing Rothfuss' talent for storytelling, I expected a tale which evoked the best of the Grimms, was a little humorous while still being dark, and revealed something unexpected about humanity. Yet what we got was a story about a princess who turns out all wrong (even the non-typical princesses have realistic motives for their behaviour) in the worst way possible. I guess it's interesting that Rothfuss turned the genre on its head by having the princess turn out to be the monster in the end, but I still can't bring myself to enjoy the story. ( )

When cute fairy tales go *really* wrong. :)

Honestly, I watched this on youtube, with the author narrating it for an audience:

And he was even so helpful as to break it down and show us just how much of a kid's book this IS NOT. He even shows us how we READ IT WRONG.

I love this man. :)

So cute. So DARK. :) ( )

I can imagine some people loving this, but I'm at the opposite end of the spectrum. I thought this was really, viscerally, horrible. I had nightmares. Just to be clear, it looks like a fun, charming, children's book, but it's not. At all. I enjoy sly satires, it's fun when people bend the rules a bit, I thought "A Series of Unfortunate Events" was (slightly repetitive) but mostly clever, but this book ... ugh ... not for me.

I turned off South Park's "Imaginationland" episode part-way in because it was much too much for me. This is the same kind of thing. If you loved Strawberry Shortcake being tortured, you will enjoy this book. ( )
