An Undone Fairy Tale

When I went to my local library to ask for a recommendation of a good story to read out loud, I ended up walking out with An Undone Fairy Tale by Ian Lendler, illustrated by Whitney Martin.  

This fractured fairy tale tells the story of a beautiful pie-baking princess who is locked in a tower by her greedy stepfather, and the brave knight Sir Wilbur who defeats the savage pretzel and builds a giant wall of grape Popsicles to win her freedom.  Things do not go according to plan, however... they never do.
