urgent request for fairy tales with a twist

Discussion in 'Primary' started by nic22, Jan 24, 2011.

  1. i am looking at traditional tales with a twist - last minute decision- and unfortunately can only find one book in school that fits the bill. does anyone have any iwb versions of e.g. prince cinders, princess smartypants, three little wolves etc?

    thanks.

    You can order books on amazon which arrive speedily - why not try there?
    Sorry I can't be more helpful!
     
  4. Look on Amazon for the Seriously Silly Stories books by Laurence Anholt
    They follow the tradition format of the well known Fairy Tale, but put different characters in eg. the football playing Cinderboy or the pop star Snow White and her 7 Aliens.
    Goes down well for KS1 and KS2 have been known to chuckle along.

    why not try writing your own or get upper KS2 staff to have their children write them?

  7. Paperbag Princess? She rescues the prince in the end.
    The Three Little Wolves and the Big Bad Pig might be a good one.

    Good luck.
     
  8. Have you tried 'The Stinky Cheeseman and Other Fairly Stupid Tales' by Jon Scieszka? I used this with my Year 6 class last year and they loved it!

    Roald Dahl's Goldilocks is a seriously unpleasant little madam.
    There's the one about the three pigs and the wolf where the roles are reversed but I can't remember the title. Someone will know it!

    Silly me! You'd already mentioned it in your OP!
