Politically Correct Bedtime Stories

Modern Tales for our Life and Times
by James Finn Garner

This is a silly collection of fairy tales updated for a more politically correct world. An example from the updated story of Snow White:

Her nickname was Snow White, indicative of the discriminatory notions of associating pleasant or attractive qualities with light, and unpleasant or unattractive qualties with darkness. Thus, at an early age, Snow White was an unwitting if fortunate target for this type of colorist thinking.

It’s a fluffy and fun, if quick, read.
