This funny, original choose-your-path picture book of fractured fairy tales will charm any young fan of the genre, putting the power of storytelling right in the reader's hands!

Grab your basket and your coat. Put on some walking shoes.

Turn the page and begin: Which story will you choose?

Award-winning creators Laurel Snyder and Dan Santat transform a crowd of classic tales into an ever-changing, fascinating, laugh-out-loud choose-your-path picture book, in which you may find a sleeping maiden, waste away in a sticky licorice cage, discover the gold at the end of a wild goose chase, or maybe (just maybe) save yourself—and the day!

Full-color illustrations were rendered in watercolor and Adobe Photoshop.

School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 3-Whether they are timid or bold, readers will delight in directing a rhyming story that magically changes every time, with choices to suit all adventurers. Familiarity with classic tales-Little Red Riding Hood, Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, Hansel and Gretel, Jack and the Beanstalk-adds to the enjoyment, but isn't necessary for understanding, as light-skinned, dark-haired "Rosie" (the Little Red Riding Hood stand-in and "you" the reader) ventures to Grandma's house with a basket of cake. Each path varies: you may slay the wolf and return home safely, or you may perish ("When gravity's in charge, the only option is DOWN THERE"). There are moments of danger, kindness, and bravery, and while the story isn't heavy-handed on morals, Snyder reminds readers that "every day.you choose," and the choices you make matter. Caldecott Medalist Santat's watercolor and digital illustrations effectively use various perspectives, contrast between light and shadow, and color to create a spectrum of moods, from the frightening to peaceful; his oversized, looming wolf in the dark woods is scary, while a golden field at sunset actually seems to glow. VERDICT This could lead to raucous story hours or interactive group reads, but what everyone needs to ask is: Do you wish you had a Choose-Your-Own-Fairy-Tale book in your hands right now? Open the book. Highly recommended.-Jenny Arch
