Free Book: The Onion meets the Brothers Grimm

If you have a nose for satire, are reading this blog, and like getting free stuff… chances are you’ll love the new free e-book just unleashed by the folks over at The Grimm Report.

Our Brothers Grimmest (think The Onion set in Far Far Away), is a great way to catch up on all the hilarious stories The Grimm Report has been putting out since last November. Written in mock-tabloid fashion, articles include Snow White’s unfortunate encounter with too many appletinis, the Magic Mirror’s new job judging “The Voice,” Rumplestiltskin’s legal name change, and a collection of “Dear Crabby” letters between a snarky self-help guru and maladjusted fairy tale characters.

Says the official Grimm Report description: “Celebrating the absurd with mock-tabloid satire, GrimmReport.com marries the reality of everyday life with popular elements from fairytales, folklore, and nursery rhymes. Rejoice with the Beast as Belle grants him permission to convert the den into a man-cave. Learn why the third little pig grows weary of his live-in brothers. Follow the courtroom drama of Rumpelstiltskin’s indictment in the Straw-To-Gold Scandal. GrimmReport.com covers all of these stories and more.”

So take a gander and let me know what you think 😉

Check back Wednesday for an interview with the amazing Heather Webb, author of BECOMING JOSEPHINE (Dec. 31, Plume/Penguin), about the mysterious and scandalous life of Josephine Bonaparte.

    The Grimm Report received a pleasant surprise yesterday from author Laura Kenyon. Laura was kind enough to feature Our Brothers Grimmest over on her blog, Skipping Midnight. We invite you to check out the article, as well as the rest of her fine blog. Thank you.

    Recently, I have connected with The GrimmReport, a mock-tabloid style publication combining tradition news reporting with my all time favorite things: fairy tales, folklore, and nursery rhymes. Just last night I was reading one of their posts, “Little Foo Foo Makes a Boo Boo,” and I couldn’t stop laughing. So if you need a chuckle, maybe a great way to break up your day and change your direction, take a peek at their free online book. You can also visit their site at, grimmreport.com. And thank you to The GrimmReport. I love to laugh, and I adore the content. ~Erika
