Publisher's Summary

Cinder, a poor and beautiful young man who designs clothing, makeup, and hair for his stepmother and stepsisters, offers his clothing and slippers to a naked stranger in the woods, who turns out to be none other than Prince Charming. Follow Cinder and Prince Charming in this twist on the classic Cinderella tale as they discover their inner strengths and find their very own happily ever after.
Enjoy The Naked Prince and three other reimagined tales from Fairyland, each with a unique spin on stories we all know and love, including The Golden Rule, where 18-year-old Gideon Golden, after being thrown out of his home in Fairyland by his homophobic parents, breaks into the cottage of three burly men on Bear Mountain.
In Whatever Happened To...? friction ensues between a celebrity with a growing appendage and a reporter who has a thing for giants.
And in Ice Cold, young Gaelen must save his love, Kieran, after a handsome but evil prince freezes Kieran's heart and bewitches him into being the prince's slave.

Charming, fun, sexy take on favorite fairy tales

I loved this book. Joe came up with some cute takes on old classics. First, we had The Naked Prince a gay take on Cinderella. It was charming and sweet. I loved his Fairy Fathers in this one they added the touch of humor.
Then The Golden Rule
A very funny, sexy take on Goldie Locks Where Gideon finds himself homeless after his parents kick him out and he ends up in the home of three beary men.
“Whatever Happened To…?,” we have a celebrity that has a growing appendage...remind you of another story?

And then, Ice Cold where Gaelen has to save his love Kieren after the evil prince froze Kieran's heart and made him his slave.
All four of these stories are such fun takes on the old classics. Each sex and humorous and lots of fun.

Joel Leslie is such an excellent narrator. He takes this collection of fun stories and breathes magic into them giving them life.

If you like fairy tales, humor, hot sex and just good ole fun, this is for you. I suggest you grab an audio to pick up your spirits on a bad day or to fill in a few hours just for fun.

Sweet stories

This was a really sweet and fun listen. There are basically four fairytales adapted to gay characters. The first two are classic fairytales, Cinderella and Goldilocks and the last two are pretty original stories, one with traditional characters and I believe the last story is totally original as I didn't recognize the story or characters. It was an interesting concept and very well written; with humor, romance and fun. However, what really made this book so enjoyable for me was the amazing voices Joel Leslie gave to these characters. I don't think I would have liked this fairytale anthology as much without his performance.

Fun Fairytales with Excellent Narration

Joe Cosentino's take on familiar fairy tales certainly brightened my day. Just the book to fill a gap and raise a smile or two. I think his take on Pinocchio was my favourite :) He has made them more interesting with how all the characters in fairyland are intermingled within each tale.

Joel Leslie's narration is superb. Each tale is unique and gives the feel of listening to a play rather than a narration, he is just that great at characterisation. Loved the wicked stepmother, (reminded me Dame Maggie Smith!) the brothers on Bear mountain, Jack (who had a thing for giants) and Italian Pinocchio. Personally I think the quality of narration made it so much more enjoyable.
I was given a copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

A fun take on the old traditional fairytales

What did you like most about The Naked Prince and Other Tales from Fairyland?

I loved the same-sex spin on our childhood's fairytales, and of course Joel Leslie did a great job as always giving distinct voices to each character.

Joe's writing isn't for everyone, and I think you either love his sometimes over-the-top (slapstick-like) humour or you don't. This is so over-the-top that a it's probably a good thing it's not a marathon book to read or listen to.

Have you listened to any of Joel Leslie’s other performances? How does this one compare?

I'm a big fan of Joel's work as a narrator. I am in awe of his range of voices (males, females and children) and "dialects" (US, British, and Australian English).

Any additional comments?

If you want to listen to a few of your childhood fairytales tweaked and "gayified", then this is for you. :)
