"Readers will delight in the sly references to other fairy tales and in the goofy visuals . . . This sassy send-up seems likely to deliver a royal case of the giggles."--Publishers Weekly "This fractured fairy tale has a thoroughly modern sensibility, from the retired monarch pursuing a second career in the arts to the feisty heroine who runs her own business. The story moves briskly along with plenty of tongue-in-cheek references to traditional tales, and the exaggerated features in the illustrations are reflected in the hyperbole of the text. . . . A silly take on kids' favorite takeout."--School Library Journal
