Not appropriate for actually angry little girls. Alright for teens and older.

The Angry Little Girls are here to give their own spin to some of our favorite fairy tales. The 5 tales and their heroines are:

- Snow Yellow and the Seven Short Men, Kim the "Angry Little Asian Girl"
- The Princess Got the Third Degree, Deborah the "Disenchanted Princess
- He's No Beauty in the Least, Maria the "Crazy Little Latina"
- RapPunsWell, Wanda the "Fresh Little Soul Sistah"
- Little Miss Wears-a-Hood, Xyla the "Gloomy Girl"

Each of the stories presents a funny, fractured fairy tale featu

SO CLOSE to being really great - these are snarky, modern takes on fairy tales with a girl-positive spin. But why all the racial stereotypes? Snow White played by an Asian girl becomes "Snow Yellow," and the Black girl stars as a rapping Rapunzel. Don't get me started on the character of "Maria the Crazy Little Latina" !!!! It all just left me feeling kind of icky.

This fairy-tale remake was epic, so funny and quirky. The drawings were simple and cute and fitted perfectly.

Snow Yellow and the Seven Short Men, Kim the "Angry Little Asian Girl"
Oh the end, the end! That had me laughing cos it was so true. Just think what really happens in the saga.

The Princess Got the Third Degree, Deborah the "Disenchanted Princess
This is the princess and the pea. That poor girl, just let the sleep. And what a mama's boy the prince is.

I've heard of these girls but I've never read any of of their books. But I love fairy tales and all its various retellings. The drawings are adorable and tell the story well enough but I feel the different personalities of the girls are not really portrayed. I don't get the craziness of Maria, the soulness of Wanda or the gloominess of Xyla. But the book is still a fun one and the illustrations are charming.

I picked this up on a whim at the library, I’m always looking for things I can read with my kids. (That’s my excuse for reading a lot of YA dystopias, though we all know I read them anyway!)

Apparently this is a fairly known comic strip, though this was my first exposure. The characters are a multicultural cauldron of little girls, reacting with all the coolness and sarcasm so perfected by the average preteen.

Perhaps were I more familiar with the strip I would have got more out of it. But honestl

It was fine, but not good enough to want to read any of the other angry little girl books.

These are pretty nice adaptations of the fairy tales for the modern times. Since they are made for kids is an easy reading for an adult. I finish the book in around half hour, I really enjoyed and I hope there are more, Now I want to read the other tales that Lela Lee wrote.... Really like the adaptations I want to se how are her own works. Also the illustrations are pretty nice done

The quirky comebacks from the feisty female characters in these retellings will leave you laughing. An angry mother-in-law to an unconvinced princess the author has deftly woven some cherished childhood stories into painful, yet funny, reflections of adulthood. Not for children, but highly recommended for college age and over.

A graphic novel of familiar fairy tales ripe with cynicism, sarcasm and humor perfect for teens. Each fairy tale stars one of the Angry Little Girls and stays true to the original story but doesn't have the fluff that so many fairy tale books can have.
