Dec. 4, 2006 – Author Jay Dubya has rewritten classic children’s fairy tales into adult versions with the hardcover publications of Fractured Frazzled Folk Fables and Fairy Farces and FFFF&FF, Part II.
Author Jay Dubya goes right to work retelling Aesop’s Fables into “A Sap’s Fables.” Adult renditions of “The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse,” “The Boy Who Cried Wolf,” “The Wind and the Sun,” “A Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing,” “The Lion and the Mouse,” “The Crow and the Pitcher,” and “The Rabbit and the Turtle” are all cleverly portrayed. Other famous fables rewritten into adult accounts are “The Fox and the Crow,” “The Goose That Laid the Golden Egg,” “The Grasshopper and the Ants,” “The Lark and Its Offspring,” “The Miller, His Son and the Jackass,” “Belling the Cat” and finally “The Dog, the Fox and the Stream.”
Folk and Fairy Tales from England, France, Germany and Russia are also imaginatively assaulted and converted into adult-oriented stories. Jay Dubya thoroughly corrupts “The Three Little Piglet Brothers,” “The Flashing Elves,” “The Golden Goose’s Goosing Curse,” “The Notorious Sleeping Beauty” and “Petite Red Riding Hood.”
Other classic stories that are not saved from degeneration are “Jack’s Magnificent Beanstalk,” “Hansel and Gretel Dumkoff,” “Little Ebony Sambo,” “Rapunzel’s Draping Hair” and “Tom Thumb’s History.” Finally, the author completely corrupts into adult parody rewrites “Peter W. and the Wolf,” “The Rumpelstiltskin No-Spin Zone,” “Beauty and the Beastly Beast,” “Cinderella’s Fella’” and the classic folktale “Flaky Snow White and the Seven Midgdwarfs.”
Fractured Frazzled Folk Fables and Fairy Farces is Jay Dubya’s twenty-first e-book. This book is definitely not written for or to be read by children.
Fractured Frazzled Folk Fables and Fairy Farces, Part II is adult literature satirizing classic children’s stories and the work is written in the spirit of its predecessor Fractured Frazzled Folk Fables and Fairy Farces. The new work FFFF&FF Part II features adult language, adult content and adult satirical humor.
Author Jay Dubya goes right to work corrupting familiar children’s stories The Three Scruffy Gruffy Billy Goats, The Gay Tailor Who Became King, Petey Rabbit, Thumbilisa Thumbilina, The Emperor’s Invisible Clothes and Goldie Lox and the Three Ursas. Several British legends are re-invented with hilarious adult renditions of St. George Slays the Dragon and Arthur Becomes King of England. Greek myths are imaginatively sabotaged with comical presentations of Daphne’s Daft Daffiness, Bellerophon’s Marathon Adventure, Baucis and Philemon, Psyche and Stupid Cupid and Atalanta’s Last Race.
Other popular children’s stories that are put into adult parodies are Pinocchio’s Personality Problem, The Wolf and the Seven Lame Lambs, The Sorcerer’s Un-resourceful Apprentice and Peter Pansy Does Kensington Gardens. Finally Author Jay Dubya presents very amusing renditions of the classic tales Alice Visits Wonderland and Aladdin’s Little Lamp. Fractured Frazzled Folk Fables and Fairy Farces, Part II is definitely not written for or to be read by children.
