Pros Hilariously twisted morbid creativeCons None if you have a macabre sense of humorThe Bottom Line Great little read for a gift or to keep to shock your guestsWhen I was little I was shocked to learn that Ring Around the Rosy was connected to the Plague and that Humpty Dumpty couldn t be put back together again As I got older I actually listened to what my childhood nursery rhymes were saying Georgie Porgie kissed girls and made them cry The farmer s wife hacked off mice tails with a carving knife The ladybug in Ladybug Ladybug fly away home Her house was on fire Jack of Jack Jill fame cracked his head Rockabye baby s cradle was teetering on the edge of falling out of a tree top London Bridge is falling down and we took a key and locked the lady up Peter Pumpkineater couldn t keep his wife so he imprisoned her in a pumpkin shellI could go on but I think you get meEven scarier are the fairy tales where princesses are poisoned by apples by witches and maidens are locked in towers and angry little dwarves are trying to steal babies Wolves eat grandmothers little children are fattened for feasting on and biological mothers perish to leave their offstpring to be abused and even killed by their replacementsEnter Erik Bergstrom a New York City based stand up comedian and artist He s taken the darker side of well known fairy tales and presents them in a comic book style hardcover I got it for Christmas from my in laws who know I have a twisted sense of humorIn the introduction Bergstrom writes that the book is an homage to fairy tales that were scary full of blood and trickery and taught you some real life lessons like not to lie and don t trust creepy old women in a forest But nowadays he notes fairy tales are gentle and fluffy There s simply no room for screaming and sobbing anyAnd he sets that right in this title believe you meThis book contains over 40 different illustrated fairy tales most with a modern twist They re all morbid for certain with most including dismemberment and death Pinocchio killing babies and medical personnel with his nose horrible things happening to poor Humpty Dumpty starvation beheadings something pretty gross involving what looks like patrons of a gay leather club and lots of death by impalingOne recurring character that has a few of her own tales is Rapunzel You can probably guess how she meets her demise in her tales yup it s her hair Another one is the frog from The Frog Prince tale and well let s just say that when he s transformed into a human not all of him becomes humanIt s definitely a uick one read and great as a gift for someone with a sick sense of humor The illustrations are very stylized but not sophisticated in the slightest If you have a slightly demented funny bone you ll definitely enjoy this Show it to your conservative friends and watch them freak out

review Grimmer Tales Grimmer Tales Download ↠ 100 Download Ð PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Ä Erik Bergstrom Ever after Well Grimmer Tales is just like that Minus the happy and the ever after In these pages you'll find classic tales twisted tweaked and riddled with morbid humor Little Boy Blue blows his brains out Pinocchio impales his dentist when asked if he's been f. Funny if you have a morbid sense of humor if not then this wicked collection of happily never after stories is just sick and disturbing So it s a good thing that my humor encapsulates the morbid As others have stated this makes for a nice gift for a friend or the coffee table but the amount of substance that you get out of this volume of tales is limited Still it is a nice uick read and disturbingly funny just don t read it before or too soon after a meal
