Set your tasers to “have a blast” in a slapstick fairy tale adventure that’s out of this world. Snitch and Sneer are the extraterrestrial stars of this sensationally silly graphic picture book, Fairy Tale Crashers. In their first adventure, Snitch and Sneer hit the hood to create chaos, laughter and general mayhem with little Red Riding Hood, the Wolf and dear ol’ Granny like you’ve never seen her before. This duo of fairy tale crashing, galactic goof balls are sure to appeal to even the most reluctant reader. So, warp speed ahead into the zaniest fairy tale adventure to ever hit the solar system.
Please, note that the print version will land on B&N soon.
Snitch and Sneer Hit the Hood is an updated version of the fairy tale Little Red Riding Hood written in cartoon format. In it there is a Snitch who is a narrator/announcer, the actors, and Sneer who mocks everything. They arrive from outer space in Fairy Tale Land and visited the stage set for Little Red Riding Hood.
This is an excellent retelling of the Little Red Riding Hood fairy tale with a few additional twists added for some extra fun. The graphics are bright and colourful and will appeal to children who enjoy comic books.
I liked the lesson at the back of the book on how to draw a wolf for those who are interested in learning to draw. There are also some humorous answers to questions that were sent in by readers to Snitch and Sneer’s Facebook page.
I thought Snitch and Sneer Hit the Hood was an amusing fairy tale retelling and would be enjoyed by comic book readers and fairy tale lovers everywhere. I gave this book 5 stars out of 5.
Thank you to the author for providing a copy of the book in exchange for a fair and honest review. A positive opinion was not required. All thoughts are my own.
