The stories we read to our children are meant to speak to our children; they’re meant to open their eyes to the world they just entered, provide them with hints about how to make choices, and most importantly, they’re meant to inspire them to feel…

Synopsis

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As a bonus (but at the risk of sounding elitist and exclusionary), the new electronic version also contains previously unpublished material: the updated nursery rhymes of “A Child’s Garden of Political Correctness”; the story “A Royal Revenge” (commissioned and broadcast by the British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.
