Fractured Fairy Tales

As a child who grew up in the 60s and was slightly warped by watching Bullwinkle cartoons, I have an affinity for fractured fairy tales.

I used to volunteer a lot at my children’s elementary school library and gathered a list of favorites, but I’ve added a few I might need to check out to buy for future grandchildren.  If you enjoy reading to children and appreciate a funny story, check these out:
