I adore Patrick Rothfuss' novels for adults, but this is a hard book to like... It's pretty clear from the outset (and the cover description) that this is not a book for children, and it is meant to invoke the dark undertones of the original fairytales and folklore. Knowing Rothfuss' talent for storytelling, I expected a tale which evoked the best of the Grimms, was a little humorous while still being dark, and revealed something unexpected about humanity. Yet what we got was a story about a princess who turns out all wrong (even the non-typical princesses have realistic motives for their behaviour) in the worst way possible. I guess it's interesting that Rothfuss turned the genre on its head by having the princess turn out to be the monster in the end, but I still can't bring myself to enjoy the story. ( )

When cute fairy tales go *really* wrong. :)

Honestly, I watched this on youtube, with the author narrating it for an audience:

And he was even so helpful as to break it down and show us just how much of a kid's book this IS NOT. He even shows us how we READ IT WRONG.

I love this man. :)

So cute. So DARK. :) ( )

I can imagine some people loving this, but I'm at the opposite end of the spectrum. I thought this was really, viscerally, horrible. I had nightmares. Just to be clear, it looks like a fun, charming, children's book, but it's not. At all. I enjoy sly satires, it's fun when people bend the rules a bit, I thought "A Series of Unfortunate Events" was (slightly repetitive) but mostly clever, but this book ... ugh ... not for me.

I turned off South Park's "Imaginationland" episode part-way in because it was much too much for me. This is the same kind of thing. If you loved Strawberry Shortcake being tortured, you will enjoy this book. ( )

This was a fun/cute picture book with great illustrations and a seemingly sweet and simple story. The writing was simple and the narrative was light and easy going but as it progressed there was a hint of something foreboding just beyond the peripheral. The last few pages of the book teeter right on the edge of a light suspense/horror book and then rapidly jump out with a surprise ending.

This is a difficult book to properly categorize or rate. The book profusely claims to NOT be meant as a children's book. And yet it maintains near-saccharine level sweetness in 2/3 of the illustrations (or more) along with childish simplicity in the narrative and accessibility. The dark and mysterious nature of the book is held at bay until nearly the end and as such I felt like it resolved itself too quickly to be particularly troublesome for children. That said, I can definitely see that the nature of the suspense could be irksome to younger and more sensitive children. At the same time, it is too short lived to be particularly suspenseful or thrilling for most adults.

I enjoyed this book for what it is....a fun exercise in a new literary form from one of my favorite contemporary authors....a book filled with whimsically cute artwork drawn with just the slightest hint of "wrongness" to provide a sense of imbalance and unease.

Overall it was a quick fun read.
