The hilarious sequel to the #1 phenomenon Politically Correct Bedtime Stories. "If we can cleanse these stories and put an end to the lies our children are spoon-fed while being spoon-fed...the world may finally become a decent place for persunkind and other, equally important species." -- James Finn Garner Spurred by the overwhelming success of the million-copy bestseller, Politically Correct Bedtime Stories, James Finn Garner continues his quest to liberate "classic" fairy tales from their archaic, sexist, ageist, classist, lookist and environmentally unsound prejudices. In Once Upon A More Enlightened Time, Garner tackles many demeaning, culturally biased viewpoints through his retelling of such well-known tales as "The Princess and the Pea" and "The Tortoise and the Hare." He has striven to fashion these bedtime stories into literature that is totally free from bias and purged from the influences of a flawed cultural past in hopes of freeing our social consciousness from these blights. If he succeeds, no longer will tortoises, hares, talking frogs and other citizens of nature bear the burden of our insecurities. No longer will mer-people suffer because of their unique evolutionary niche. And no longer will capable young womyn sleep their lives away waiting for princes to come rescue them.… (mais)

A politically correct look at fairy tales we all grew up with. Puss N Boots who turns out to actually be the brains behind a politician, ,until the politician comes clean. A really weird take on the Little Mermaid which has the Price coming to live under the sea. The Tortoise and the Hare in which the Hare takes on too many endorsements, as well as a few other issues Fun tongue and cheek look at fairy tales. ( )

Although this was written over 20 years ago, it fit in well with current perceptions. I liked the twist and turn of language, and the humour. But I don't think I can read a lot of this kind of re-hashing - 9 short stories was just the right length. A very refreshing change to the usual fairy tales. ( )

This sequel to 'Politically Correct Bedtime Stories' simply falls flat for me. Perhaps such stories as Hansel and Gretel, the Tortoise and the Hare, Puss in Boots, and "Sleeping Persun of Better-Than-Average Attractiveness" simply do not lend themselves to the same treatment that the stories in the previous volume received; perhaps they are just not as well done; perhaps the clever concept of the earlier book had simply run its course. -- Of course, as is the case with the first book, this reads quickly, so not so very much time is wasted. Still, I would not recommend this. ( )

Clever, funny book. Well-known fairy tales (including works by the Brothers Grimm and H.C. Andersen) are retold, attempting to remove all traces of sexism, racism, culturalism, nationalism, regionalism, ageism, 'look-ism,' 'able-ism,' 'size-ism,' 'species-ism,' intellectualism, socioeconomic views, enthnocentrism, phallocentrism, heteropatriarchalism, and other biases. Among the stories given fresh modern spins are Little Red Riding Hood, the Three Little Pigs, Rapunzel, Rumpelstiltskin, and (my personal favorite) the Three Codependent Goats Gruff. Absurd at times, true, but fun. ( )

This book was something I could not resist purchasing, especially with the .95 price tag. The book.. well, it is pretty much what it claimed to be.

Each fairy tale is lovingly turned into a politically correct, and sanitized version of its formerly heathen self. I read the book with my boyfriend, each of us trading off stories between sips of beer. I would pretty much say that that is the best way to read the book.

Otherwise, well, the jokes get old rather quickly. Still, an amusing novelty read. ( )

Dedicated to Anne Conrad-Antoville, principal cellist with the Eureka (California) Symphony Orchestra, who chose compassion over culture by resigning her position rather than perform "Peter and the Wof," an orchestral work that teaches our pre-adults to fear and despise wolves and other wild predators.
Also, and more importantly, to Lies and Nyuji.
