Review: Snitch & Sneer - Fairy Tale Crashers: Hit the Hood (Book 1) by Julia Dweck

Kindle Edition
Published March 27th 2015 by Sleepy Sheep Productions 
Source: I received a copy in exchange for an honest review
Description: Set your tasers to “have a blast” in a slapstick fairy tale adventure that’s out of this world. Snitch and Sneer are the extraterrestrial stars of this sensationally silly graphic picture book, Fairy Tale Crashers. In their first adventure, Snitch and Sneer hit the hood to create chaos, laughter and general mayhem with little Red Riding Hood, the Wolf and dear ol’ Granny like you’ve never seen her before. This duo of fairy tale crashing, galactic goof balls are sure to appeal to even the most reluctant reader. So, warp speed ahead into the zaniest fairy tale adventure to ever hit the solar system.
My Review: This is a fun twist on a classic fairy tale, told in a comic book/graphic novel style. The characters talk in bubbles and this duo is really goofy, always saying something crazy and funny. The drawings are appealing and the little interjections really make a young reader stop and think...and laugh.
The author has this to say about the book and new series: "This is the first in a continuing series of picture books for young readers in comic book style. In their first adventure, Snitch and Sneer crash Little Red Riding Hood in Snitch and Sneer Hit the Hood.

This fairy tale series is written with slapstick humor to encourage young readers to do what teachers and parents love best, read! I encourage your young reader to post their fairy tell questions to S&S on their FB fan page. This is a meaningful way to practice writing skills. Once a month, we will randomly pick a winner to send a S&S t-shirt for the next two months."
This is a fun way to really get a young reader involved in the book world. Check it out and be sure to visit the fan page here.
