Leaping Beauty : and other animal fairy tales
Maguire, Gregory.
Children's Fiction MAGUIRE

Comments  Summary  Excerpt  Reviews  Author Notes

Summary: Who better to wreak havoc with eight beloved fairytales than Gregory Maguire, the brilliantly funny author of the adult novel Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West , as well as of the hilarious middle-grade series, The Hamlet Chronicles . Zany animals of all species run through these fractured tales with alarming speed and dexterity. Who would have thought that Sleeping Beauty, that most regal of all fairy- tales, could be twisted into the story of a frog with a most unusual and promising dance career? Get ready to meet a gorilla queen and a psycho chimp, seven giant giraffes; and one very bad walrus. Ages 8-12
