Because sometimes we simply need a little chuckle and some good, clean fun . . .
Ugly princes, fibbing fairy godmothers, and knights who prefer clown suits to suits of armor–these clearly aren’t your ordinary fairy tales. They are, in fact, Jay Ward’s infamous Fractured Fairy Tales, originally introduced within Ward’s brilliant Rocky & Bullwinkle Show in the 1960s. From princesses who take destiny into their own capable hands, to inept witches with broomstick envy, to beauties who happily discover their inner beasts, these tales contain surprisingly modern messages of female empowerment. Likely to thumb their noses at tradition and find their own versions of happily ever after, these quirky characters bring fresh and irreverent humor to sixteen twisted tales filled with silly, witty fun.
