Legally Correct Fairy Tales

This hilarious spoof on all the old classic fairy tales has a decidedly legal squint to it as for example when Prince Charming is prosecuted for sexual abuse after forcing several damsels to try on a glass slipper to satisfy his foot fetish.

    1. It was such a good parody it actually slipped all the way over into being too close for comfort. I liked some of the unique twists on the old tales, but I would have liked it to be funnier.

    2. This book was interesting to read, but not great. I think the author had a little too much fun with the puns for my tastes, they got tiring after a while. I also think the legal aspect was a nice twist, but it also was taken too far so that the stories got a little boring when they went on too long. It was a nice concept and a fun read at times, but the stories were still incredibly similar to the originals so it wasn't surprising to read, if that makes sense. I think what makes new versions of [...]

    3. You don't have to have a paralegal certificate to enjoy this book, but since I do have one, it made the book so much more of a laugh. What I really liked was the variety of legal documents and issues covered, ie a Complaint from Jack and Jill against the bucket manufacturer, the deposition of the Big Bad Wolf, Beauty's Petition to divorce Beast, and psychologists' Affidavits regarding the mental states of Pinocchio and Hansel and Gretel, just to name a few. If you're in the mood for something li [...]

    4. Some of these reinterpreted fairytales were entertaining, but the translation into legalese often took away much of the humour and narrative. The only one that I can really recall finding even vaguely amusing is the one in which the wolf who blew down the three little pigs' houses is put on trial for allegedly being a construction racketeer - and even it wasn't quite enough.

    5. It was funny enoughi think t his would be funnier if i was a lawyer, but anyway, there's a mix of lawsuits, medical testimony etc. based on well known fairy tales. Ex: Beauty and the Beast's divorce papers, Snow White's notification to be a equal opportunity Employer and the defense argument of Goldilock's lawyer.

    6. It was hilarious! To have the fairy tales retold with all the lawyer speak and court jargon was just great. I got a kick out of reading it the way it was presented. The last few stories took a little longer to get through only because there were so many but it was still a cute little read.

    7. This hilarious version of classic fairy tales points out the good and bad now. Each case is presented in a different format, from a brief to a closing statement to a testimony. So many awful people from foot fetish Prince to the Bear biased detective.

    8. some were cute.others were a struggle to get through and I was tempted to skip to the end. There were some cute moments and then there were moments that kinda made me angry (like the beauty and the beast story). There also seemed to be a lot of repetition.

    9. Really interesting twist on FairyTales, I had to give it to my law teacher after I read it, knew he would enjoy it.

    10. Loaded with legalities? Yes, but gives such a twist to the well-known fairy tales! Tip: It tends to get boring at times. Just remember, "this too shall pass". ;)

    11. Hilarious concept. It was very entertaining. Pinocchio was hands-down the most clever, but I enjoyed all the stories.
