Outline ReviewLittle Red Riding Hood, the Frog Prince, Goldilocks, Rumplestiltskin... You may remember this cast of characters from story hour. Stand this beloved crew on their heads, stretch them, twist them, and surround them from all sides and you have Once upon a Fairy Tale, the second star-studded children's book project (following The Emperor's New Clothes) to benefit the Starbright Foundation for seriously ill children. Twenty-one celebrities from Oprah Winfrey to Barbra Streisand to Robin Williams to Steven Spielberg share their short, unique takes on four traditional stories, teaming up with a dizzying array of artistic talent from Chris Raschka to Anita Lobel. (Among our favorites are Berkeley Breathed's goofy rendition of the Frog Prince and Giselle Potter's odd perspective on Goldilocks.) A full-length audio CD, slipped into a pocket in the back of the book, is chock-full of bedtime stories read by celebrities, complete with delicate musical accompaniments. (Please note: you can't listen while reading along with the book--there are enough discrepancies in the recorded version to make it too distracting.) Brief biographies of the cast of celebrities and illustrators end this eclectic collection. If you never imagined Bruce Willis reading a bedtime story, or Calista Flockhart as Goldilocks (okay, so that's easy), dreams come true here for the pop-culture-entrenched. (Ages 6 to adult)
After a successful debut last year, Once Upon a Fairy Tale is on its way to becoming a timeless, best-loved storybook. Stars from Steven Spielberg, Hugh Grant, and Martha Stewart to Whoopi Goldberg, Gwyneth Paltrow, Mike Myers, and Robin Williams bring four classic stories-The Frog Prince, Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Rumplestiltskin, and Little Red Riding Hood-to life. Your image of these well-loved characters will be forever changed by the illustrative contributions of Chris Van Allsburg, Anita Lobel, Barry Moser, Jerry Pinkney, and others.
Included is a full-length compact disc with celebrities performing the stories-all to benefit the STARBRIGHT Foundation, established to improve the lives of seriously ill children.
