it was ok
bookshelves: for-kids
Read in December, 2008

I am all for reimagined tales, from fairy tales and myths to, well, anything. But this one left me unimpressed. It definitely had a message, as children's books can and perhaps even should. But it was presented so blandly, with such a heavy hand, that it felt ultimately like a book that rich white liberals would by for their children to prove to themselves that they themselves were advanced thinkers and patrons of the arts.
