Publisher's Summary

Not Your Mother's Goose proves that fairy tales and nursery rhymes aren't just for kids anymore. Envision it as the Cliffs Notes of children's stories - if Cliffs Notes was overtaken by Dave Barry or the folks at The Onion. Not Your Mother's Goose is a series of totally irreverent, mega-sarcastic fairy-tale recaps, along with a host of hilarious fake news stories and headlines ranging from Rapunzel getting a bikini wax to Old McDonald bombing on Wheel of Fortune after only buying vowels. The net result is a madcap trip that will leave you laughing all the way from Rumpelstiltskin's Twitter feed to Humpty Dumpty's Facebook page (where Jack is still trying to grow a beanstalk - in FarmVille).

Funny, Inappropriate and Entertainig

What did you love best about Not Your Mother's Goose?

This is a spoof of the Mother Goose rhymes and Fairy Tales. It is written in the same vein as "Politically Incorrect Bedtime Stories." The spoofs are creative and delightfully irreverent. The narrator's voice is perfect for the role. He gives a good performance with nice delivery. This is a fun book.

What did you like best about this story?

The wacky and creative ideas are great. Repunzel goes to a spa to get a bikini wax. Locks of Love is unsure how to respond to her donation. Yep, that's a dilemma. How about when the Big Bad Wolf eats Dr. Phil to fulfill the dying wish of little Timmy from Make-A-Wish Foundation. With stories like this, you can not go wrong.

Which character – as performed by Eric Martin – was your favorite?

There are not characters per se in this book. Just awesome short little spoofs of fairy tales.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

You certainly could listen to it all in one setting. I like listening to it in half hour chunks on my commute. It was a great way to end the day.

Any additional comments?

This is definitely for adults. It contains adult language and themes. I received this book free in exchange for an honest review.

If I had simply brought the Kindle version of this, I couldn't have done it justice in the reading. I was telling other people aboit this book b4 I even finished. Well worth the purchase.

This audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review courtesy of Audiobook Blast. (Yes, books I really like I purchase both versions.)
