These Children Who Come at You with Knives, and Other Fairy Tales by Jim Knipfel

here’s a book you may not have heard of, but was released just last month. These Children Who Come at You with Knives, and Other Fairy Tales

what it is is a collection of Fractured Fairy Tales set in the modern day, I actually expected it to be a bit more serious, but make no mistake this is not like that Kiefer Sutherland flick Freeway or Running Scared, it’s actually a very spoofy and silly book with a very modern style of humor

while I do think a more serious take on modern day fairy tales would be interesting, I can’t deny that the book is absolutely hilarious, I was seriously laughing out loud (or loling if you will) quite a bit

the stories involve things like talking chickens, talking plants, talking fish, a horse that robs banks and kills people, a crappy snowman and thousands of cockroaches (visions of the last part of Creepshow dancing through my head)

the only problem is that the book is pretty short and can easily be finished in one sitting, I actually hope maybe they’ll be a volume two one day, but hey you’ll have a really fun night when reading it

this is the first book I’ve read by author Jim Knipfel and I’m definitively interested in reading more by this guy
