Published by Penguin Books (29 Oct 2013).

Hardback 1st edition.

ISBN: 978-0143124795

Based on the blog Fairy Tales for Twenty-Somethings.

The Tortoise and the Hare Facebook stalk each other. Goldilocks goes gluten free. And Peter Pan finally has to grow up and get a job, or at least start paying rent.

In our brave new world of social networking, YouTube, and texting, fairy tales can once again lead us to “happily ever after”—and have us laughing all the way.
