BOOK NOOK: FISHDUCKY'S FABLES

Gentle Readers . . . and Maxwell,

Today I hope I'll have you clicking away on your computers to buy Fishducky's Fables by Fran Fischer, known to many of us as fishducky, of fishducky, finally!



You can purchase Fishducky's Fables from Amazon at http://www.amazon.com/Fishduckys-Fables-Fran-Fischer/dp/1482581434 or from the Wayman Publishing site at http://www.waymanpublishing.com/index.php/books.

This book is a steal at $5.92 because it will give you at least 592 laughs.

You get fishducky's versions of fairy tales; the REAL story behind how some things happen; stories about gods, goddesses, and other important people; a couple of scary stories (that aren't scary at all); and some nursery rhymes, fishducky style.

With fishducky, you don't get three little pigs. It's "The Four Little Pigs," which starts with

Once upon a time there were four little pigs and the time came for them to leave home and seek their fortunes. Their mother packed them each a lunch of peanut butter and slop sandwiches (their favorite), some carrot sticks, an apple and a can of V8 juice. She gave them each a kiss and told them, "Be sure to buy some land and build a sturdy house, because that will keep you safe and warm for the rest of your lives. Keep in touch with me and your dad and be sure to write if you find work. Adieu, mes enfants!" (She came from a family of Porc Gascons, a French breed, and wanted everybody to know it.)

Now, how could I not be hooked by a mommy pig who's as pretentious as I am? This book is just plain adorable. The stories are short. You can take the book with you and read while you wait for the doctor, lawyer, or Indian chief to see you. I read a few stories every night, and went to sleep smiling.

You can also read it with kids. My grandchildren love it.

Thus, Fishducky's Fables earns The Janie Junebug Highest Seal of Approval.

You wanna know why it has my seal? I'll tell you why. Because it's funny, it's well written, it's inexpensive, it's by my favorite fishducky, and my middle child published it.

If that's not enough to make you buy it, you just let me know, and I'll invent more reasons (like maybe you could find the book with The Golden Ticket in it that allows you to visit Bud and Fran and ride up and down in their elevator as many times as you want).

Go on. Give yourself a smile and a laugh with Fishducky's Fables,

Infinities of love,

Janie Junebug

  2. This sounds cute.

    I remember a book about politically correct fairy tales and it had me howling.

    I'll put this on my Amazon list for later in the day.

    1. I only do super saver shipping, too. It's crazy to spend money on shipping when a lot of times that money is enough to buy another book.

  8. I think she should do an audio book of it. I'd love to hear her reading her stories-
