This book is basically a spoof of certain fairy tales:  Chicken Licken, The Princess and the Pea becomes The Princess and the Bowling Ball; The Ugly Duckling becomes The Really Ugly Duckling, Little Red Riding Hood becomes Little Red Running Shorts, etc.  These new stories are a bit odd and off the wall but that is what makes them so funny.  It says good for ages 4 and up, but my 5 year old didn't grasp the humor, just thought they were real fairy tales.  My 7 year old was offended by these takes on the classics, but in a funny way.  I enjoyed all of the stories, it's a good way to find a little humor in a small book.
