Hardback
Category: General Humour
'Essential reading for adults of all ages ... the wisest, funniest, most thoughtful thing yet written on the subject of PC' Observer In this bestselling classic, James Finn Garner has rewritten classic stories for more enlightened times; from Snow White's relationship with seven vertically challenged men, Little Red Riding Hood, her grandma and the cross-dressing wolf who set up an alternative household based on mutual respect and cooperation, to the Emperor who was not naked but was endorsing a clothing-optional lifestyle. At last, here is bedtime reading free from prejudice and discrimination of witches, giants, dwarves, goblins and fairies everywhere. For anyone brought up on sexist, racist, sizeist and ethnocentrist reading matter, James Finn Garner's stories have been purged of the influence of an insensitive cultural past to become fables for our times. For those bewildered by modern sensibilities, Politically Correct Bedtime Stories is a witty take on the sometimes over-careful ways in which we speak and think.
