grand central Tales gently twisted Messing with the Brothers Grimm? Sacrilege! So, imagine our surprise when GRAND discovered the new Gram’s Fairy Tales™: A New, Kinder, Gentler Telling of Fairy Tale Favorites© series of delightfully clever and gore-free stories. Grandparents who were raised on and still cherish the traditional (but often violent) old tales will appreciate being able to introduce classic characters and life lessons to youngsters without terrifying them. Author Susan Meredith (a loving grandmother herself and a not-at-all-wicked stepmother) has a quirky sense of humor that shines in her plot twists that both adults and kids will enjoy. We’re happy to report that in Little Red Riding Hood, Hansel & Gretel and The Enchanted Flounder (a riff on “The Fisherman and His Wife”), no one gets eaten by wolves, no one gets abandoned in the forest, and happy endings abound.
