Politically Correct Bedtime Stories - James Finn Garner Very slim volume - only took about an hour to read.
These are short retellings of classic fairy tales, complete with twists and sly asides, poking fun of - or maybe just paying tribute to - our 'enlightened' society. The brevity of the book is probably wise, as the joke does get repetitive after a while - but still, there are some clever turns of phrase and funny changes in plot - especially as far as punchlines. Definitely good for a few laughs.
