Review: Newfangled Fairy Tales: Book 2 ed. by Bruce Lansky

Synopsis: This new collection of ten contemporary fairy tales - the second the critically acclaimed series - puts a delightful, new spin on classic stories and themes. (from the back of the book)

Review: I purchase because the first one was clever and hilarious. This one was not. The stories were trite, stupid and simply with none of the wit or depth the previous book had. I was disappointed. If you are interested in quirky retellings of fairy tales, there are a dozen other books much better than this one, sadly.
