Originally published in 1994, Politically Correct Bedtime Stories spent more than 60 weeks on the New York Times Bestseller list, eventually hitting the #1 spot. Also a best seller in Canada and Great Britain, it has been translated into more than 25 languages and adapted numberless times for stage and radio. According to the Times of London: “It is beautiful. It demolishes, in few but elegant words, a dozen kinds of silliness. It is better than I can possibly convey.”
Only one thing was wrong with the original edition – the number of innocent trees that gave up their lives to print it. Now, with this 100% tree-free edition, readers can enjoy these classic bedtime stories in up-to-date, aggressively progressive versions without guilt, especially if their e-readers are solar-powered.
From Cinderella rejecting unrealistic ideas of feminine beauty, to the Three Little Pigs arming themselves and overthrowing their imperialist wolf oppressors, all right-minded people will feel comfortable reading these enlightened versions to their little pre-adults.
Plus, this new edition contains the long-suppressed waterfowl classic, The Duckling That Was Judged on Its Persunal Merits and Not on Its Physical Appearance!
As a bonus (but at the risk of sounding elitist and exclusionary), the new electronic version also contains previously unpublished material: the updated nursery rhymes of “A Child’s Garden of Political Correctness”; the story “A Royal Revenge” (commissioned and broadcast by the British Broadcasting Corporation for Queen Elizabeth II’s Golden Jubilee in 2002); and the first chapter of James Finn Garner’s latest work, Honk Honk, My Darling: A Rex Koko, Private Clown Mystery.
