The Frog Prince ContinuedAuthor: Jon Scieszka (on JOMB)
Illustrator: Steve Johnson (on JOMB)
Published: 1991 Penguin (on JOMB)
ISBN: 014054285X

Delightfully flippant dialogue and dark, stylized illustrations laced with familiar, fun-to-find details take us on a hilarious journey through the forest of fairy tales in this quest for missing marital bliss.

More fairy tales gone wild and fun with the familiar on JOMB:

HOTLINE VOICES: Paul Muller talks about passing along his enjoyment of Pickle Things (by Marc Brown), a book from his childhood, to his own son.

For a bit older readers, there is also the Twice Upon a Time Series by Wendy Mass (author of “Every Soul a Star”, “Mango Shaped Space” and “Jeremy Fink and the Meaning of Life”):

Sleeping Beauty (the one who took the really long nap)

Rapunzel (the one with all the hair)

Another book that twisted the fairy tale elements is Once Upon a Motorcycle Dude by Kevin O’Malley
