I love the Mother Goose one the best. I like how Chriis Colfer ffit Mother Goose into history. The Red Riding hood book was just like her and was very funny. Even though the book had a lot of fancy words it is very easy to read. But I only understud 7/8 of it. So if your pretty young and want to read this just be ready.

AudioBook Review: Stars: Overall: 3 Narration: 3 Story: 3 Combining two titles, the first we’ll talk about today is Queen Red Riding Hood’s Guide to Royalty. While I was expecting a bit of twisted humor and a unique take on the tales that are familiar, Colfer adds some strange tweaks and twists to the story, and perhaps takes a bit too political a stance on the relationship (cross-species *gasp*) between Froggy and Red. Now – I have zero issue with presenting a relationship as a done deal, and even showing relationships or elements that are out of the ‘mainstream’ to perhaps start to present differences to children. But I do draw the line at proselytizing a point with overplaying its importance. Not so thinly veiled references to the similarities between the ‘cross species’ relationship and the fight for LGBT equality did, for me, cross the boundary of effectiveness. Show me the relationship, have Red share her philosophy on life (be yourself – and let them talk) and even show that they rise above the chatter. But please don’t turn a title into a manifesto for one issue – and that is what this book boiled down to for me. Not to mention that Red was more than a touch self-centered and brash- and difficult to engage with. The second in this collection is The Mother Goose Diaries – and this was the romp and amusement I expected as we traversed some 500 odd years of historical events and moments – all tinged with humor and some rather unique perspectives. Mother Goose is sharing her moments and events – in a rather uneven retelling – from fairly well flushed out to rather rushed in the latter moments. There’s a certain humor that Colfer carries through the stories – but whether or not it is child appropriate or better fielded with an audience in their early teens is up for anyone to debate. Personally I was more intrigued with the hype surrounding the books than the actuality of the title itself. Narration is from the author, and like the stories he presents, there’s just something not quite ‘appropriate’ for children here. While Sesame Street works on multiple levels for adults and children, much of it carefully presented, it almost felt as if both the book and the narration were TRYING to work on two or more levels, and neither quite hit the mark. It may be something you’ll enjoy – but I would be cautious about grabbing this collection for your child. I received an audiobook copy of the title from Hachette Audio for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
