Book by Garner, James F.
  • I found this book to be a little to graffic to read to my children. My kids are coming to the age where they are ready for fairy tales, but I don't think that I want them to learn about such topics before they are drinking out of cups without lids on them. If James Finn Garner intended this book for children rather than a mens bathroom at a truck stop, then he intends to raise his children in a different manner than my wife and I. Some day my children will be ready to learn about sexuality and the humor behind it, but I think when that day comes they will be reading beyond the three little pigs and little red riding hood.

  • This book by James Finn Garner twists fairy tales to drop dead laughers. The new stories are now free of all cruel and sexist remarks and makes it all seem so natural it's funny. I highly recomend this book.

  • My favorite part of these titles is in the first book the story of the 3 little pigs and in the second, the alphabet soup.
    This is tongue in cheek satire at it's finest.

  • this book is for adults, it has adult humor. The reason you found it too graphic to read to your kids is because it is not for them.
