After reading this book we decided to look more into the Far Out Fairy Tales series. There are three more books which our library happened to have. Here's a quick run down…
Red Riding Hood, Superhero stars Ruby, your average granddaughter of the president of the United States. Oh plus she has a secret identity-- she's a superhero! And she's protecting the world and President Grandma from evil--this time it's the diabolical Professor Grimm who was bitten by a radio-active wolf! This one is fun and the parallels to the original are quite clever!
In Super Billy Goats Gruff the goats eat some magic plants and morph into a video game…where they are looking for food, because even with video game powers, they're still hungry! This was one has a lot of silly fun. You follow each brother on a different level of the game and they eventually meet up to trip trap across the lava bridge…will they get across?? (If you've read the original, then you probably know the answer to that.)
Snow White and the Seven Robots is the last version we read. It's set in space and has kind of a Stars Wars feel...maybe?? This was a little deep for us, but I suspect that it would make a space and robot loving kiddo very happy. That sounds right up Robyn's alley…maybe she'll have to check this one out and report back.
I don't know if there are plans for more books to be made in this series, but I certainly hope so! We'd read them for sure! Would you, or are you more of a fairy tale purest?
Happy reading everyone!
