An Undone Fairy Tale
author: Ian Lendler
illustrator: Whitney Martin
Genre: Picture Book, Fairy Tale
Summary (from Goodreads): Now, Ned and I admire how well you read. But the story will be ruined if you turn the page right now.
So please don't.
A beautiful pie-making princess is trapped in a tower. Can Sir Wilbur rescue her? And more importantly, can he do it while wearing a tutu? He's going to try! But if you read the story too quickly, Ned won't be able to make the pictures or costumes in time. And happily-ever-after may start to go a bit haywire.
Join Ian Lendler and Whitney Martin for a fairy tale that takes off into hilarious uncharted territory -- all because you won't slow down!
Review: Not only do my girls love this book, but I thoroughly enjoy reading it, and I suspect my husband does, too! It starts out sounding much like a traditional fairy tale, but quickly devolves into silliness as the illustrator runs out of time to complete the illustrations. My kids thought it was hilarious that the king wore a donut crown and that the knights rode on fish, and they couldn't wait to turn the pages to see what crazy thing would happen next. All in all, a delightful fun read with entertaining illustrations.
