Product Description

Synopsis

In this exhilarating collection, fifteen classic fairy tales from around the world are retold in an erotic form. Including such favourites as Cinderella, Rapunzel, Little Red Riding Hood and Sleeping Beauty, all the original characters and situations are in place, only sexual situations have been inserted to subvert familiar plots. Additionally, each story features a short author introduction that highlights the often erotic origins of what are thought of as today as children's literature.

5.0 out of 5 stars Naughty 1 Nov 2004
By Lucy Felthouse TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is one of the very first books I read when I started to get into erotic literature, mainly because Mitzi Szereto teaches at the Uni I went to. She didn't teach erotic writing, unfortunately. I did, however, speak to her a couple of times and she doesn't look at all the sort to write such stories, nor of course, do I with my angelic smile! 0:-)

Anyway, in fifteen entertaining stories, this book does exactly what it says on the tin, "a romp through the classics." Taking the stories, as magical as they are, and putting an erotic element in them is great. It's all very tongue in cheek and humorous, not something you'd read to get you off, but more something as an alternative to the straightforward tales.

I love this book dearly, some of the humour is so subtle you could almost miss it, and some of the actions are very rude and naughty, but the way in which they are described make them somehow seem less so. Describing a Princess' genitals as a rose petal, for example, is not something you'd expect.

Find it all here, a randy Granny, young ladies doing most unorthodox things with turnips, and perving parrots! This is seriously not one to be missed! It's also a gentle introduction into erotic literature for those perhaps a little reluctant to start buying Black Lace and Blaze books.

5.0 out of 5 stars A rollicking good read! 17 July 2004
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Author Mitzi Szereto has served up a tasty feast of erotic fun in this sparkling collection of stories. From the well-known to the obscure, she tackles the fairy/folktale genre with charm, wit and sexiness. A truly entertaining and original read.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 11 Mar 2013
By JudethM
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Not what I was expecting. Too tongue in cheek, trying to be amusing. Too long before each story proving their research credentials. Should have written an in depth literary account of the history of fairy tales. I would have enjoyed that more, instead of trying to be something that it wasn't

4.0 out of 5 stars A fine work 19 May 2010
Format:Paperback
Mitzi Sereto is one of the leading names in Erotic Fiction and this book shows her at her best.

Taking such classics as Cinderella, Rapunzel, Little Red Riding Hood and Sleeping Beauty, all the original characters and situations are in place but with adult content. With fifteen entertaining stories, this book is a fine collection of stories for adults. It is designed to be a romp and it is in every sense of the word. It's all very tongue in cheek and humorous and above all very intelligent and as another reviewer has mentioned "a fine alternative to the straightforward tales."

1.0 out of 5 stars Dreadful 31 Jan 2009
By Chessy
Format:Paperback
About as erotic as a wet flannel, this book works neither as an erotic collection nor as fairy tales. Very disappointing.
