Following the international best-seller Politically Correct Bedtime Stories comes Once Upon a More Enlightened Time, a wholesome collection of nurturing and corrective stories for pre-adults. These tales attempt to purge the cultural biases, sexism, lookism, speciesism, and other insidious -isms from the “classic” bedtime stories that have been handed down from one social power structure to another. A better world starts with better bedtime stories – and these stories made the New York Times best-seller list.
From “The Little Mer-Persun” protecting her unique evolutionary niche, to “Hansel and Gretel” becoming eco-terrorists to defend their forest home, these recast tales will inspire a new generation of right-thinking people to make the world a better place for persuns, non-persuns, animals, ogres, pixies, and talking mirrors of all persuasions.
As a bonus, this new electronic version also contains previously unpublished material: a full-length PC novella version of “Pinocchio” that was excised from the original edition; and the second chapter of James Finn Garner’s stupendous, colossal mystery novel, Honk Honk, My Darling: A Rex Koko, Private Clown Mystery.
