Summary (From the publisher):

Welcome to the fairy-tale world where Hansel and Gretel are horrible children who deserve to be baked and where Beauty is dismayed when her beloved Beast turns human. In the world of the Brothers Grimm and the Sisters Weird, when the sky really does fall, Chicken Little becomes the leader of her own religious movement, gets her own TV show, collects millions of dollars to build a theme park, and then makes off with the money. These tongue-in-cheek interpretations of some of the best-known fairy tales will have readers in stitches.
