By the middle grades, children know the storylines of familiar fairytales, which makes them all the funnier when they veer off in different directions. Good 'fractured fairytales' twist the child reader's perspective on the story, showing other possibilities. From a frog, who thinks he's Sleeping Beauty, to a cool-rappin' fairy godmother who sends Cinderella to a Hip-Hop Ball, to a boy who waits beneath a stone bridge to fool trolls, Once Upon a Twisted Tale is a rollicking, rhyme-filled poetry collection that can be read for sheer amusement or used in a classroom to compare original tales to the twisted tales as per Language Arts requirements.
