Classic stories with death, dismemberment and lambs with guns

If your tastes lean a bit toward the macabre, this book is for you:

Grimmer Tales: A Wicked Collection of Happily Never After Stories. The description:

"A hilarious collection of upended fairy tales that will recast your classic family favorites in an all-wrong light.

Remember those beloved fairy tales you read as a child? Where the damsel in distress is rescued by the handsome prince and then they all live happily ever after? Well Grimmer Tales is just like that. Minus the happy and the ever after!

In these pages you'll find classic tales twisted, tweaked, and riddled with morbid humor. Little Boy Blue blows his brains out, Pinocchio impales his dentist when asked if he's been flossing and Rapunzel's head comes off at its stem when her prince charming climbs the tower.

Get ready for your nostalgia-o-meter to flicker enthusiastically while shivers course up your spine at the all-wrong acts committed by the heroes and heroines of yesteryear."
