They say you should never judge a book by its cover, but I usually do. I will admit that I needed a book, and so I grabbed this one quickly. Judging from the cover of the book I already had my mind set up that I was probably not going to enjoy this book or see any use for this in the classroom. I was wrong. I loved this book because it takes a traditional, classic picture book and puts a twist to it. The book is about a cop who lives in Storyville. He takes stories with sad endings, and rewrites [...]

I read this twice and got quite a chuckle out of it, but I didn't give it a 5 because I think the humor is above the heads of children of an age interested in picture books. It's cute, though, and funny.

I read this to my older niece and nephew a couple years ago, and really enjoyed it. I tried to do the voices all different, since I've heard that kids remember that sort of thing. My sister says they still read it almost every night.

"My name is Jake Gander. I'm a cop. My beat: Storyville, a fairy-tale town where endings aren't always happy. My job is to rewrite them."

Hilarious! Tons of jokes in the pictures that littles just wouldn't understand. Reminiscent of Mercer Mayer's early picture books, but with more contemporary art.

Written as a spoof of noir, this book is a hilarious re-telling of Little Red Riding Hood.

A fun, fractured look at the Little Red tale. I like this one best for an early elementary age crowd, rather than preschoolers.
