This is a great read, indeed in bed. Great fun to read it to your bedpartner, for the both of you!

I was back to the "crime scene" and got another book. :) This one was left at the hotel a couple of hours after I'd been there to get my first caught in the wild. This book was harder to get cause apparently it was lost in the "lost & found" at the hotel so I had to go there twice until they found this book.
It's a small and easily read book. Started it last night and had lots of fun with the two first stories:)) Will surely finish it in the next couple of days and then plan to organize a tour for the book among my friends before releasing it in the wild.
I surely recommend this book if you want to spend some pleasant & funny moments :)
Thanks one more time to Willemijn for leaving the book here.

26/09 - Finished reading the book this morning and passed it to a co-worker. Hope she'll have as much fun as me while reading the book :)

It's a good reading book; gives another version about bedtime stories!
As histórias que todos nós conhecemos são agora reinventadas e contadas de acordo com a sociedade em que vivemos!

It's a nice book.
A little small for my taste. It's a great idea, a new one!, at least for me, it's well written, the morphed stories are amusing. He could have used some more stories. The Sleeping Beauty retold is amazing, my favourite.
I advice this book for fast reading and don't expect too much "litteracy" of it... but expect fun.

Mady kindly released this book to me. I really must thank her because it is indeed a very good book. I read it very fast because the stories are small but very enthusiastic. It's a modern version of our infant stories. I really laugh at some of them and it was a very nice way to remember the old days.
I would advise this book for anyone who wants a soft reading, but very well written. Enjoy it! I'll be expecting for new books from this author (James Finn Garner). I think he will surprise me again one of these days.

This was a nice book to read, a very funny one! :) Being more politically correct is not only about changing the story but also in writing some words differently, like "wommon" instead of "woman", which contains the word "man"...
I hope more persons end up reading this nice little book! I gave it back to Mady so I'm sure it'll be read by many people!
