Or Rapunzel gets a buzz cut? When The Ugly Duckling discovers Instagram filters, can she give herself a makeover? What if Goldilocks went gluten-free? Or if Jack and Jill ran up their iPhone bill? Or Snow White had seven Facebook stalkers?Alice in tumblr-Land is a collection of Tim Manley's cartoons based off of his popular blog, Fairy Tales for Twenty-Somethings, where classic fairy tale characters grow up in the 21st century with lots of problems.
Here are more than one hundred fairy tales, illustrated and re-imagined for today. Instead of fairy godmothers, there’s Siri. And rather than big bad wolves, there are creepy dudes on OkCupid. In our brave new world of social networking, YouTube, and texting, fairy tales can once again lead us to “happily ever after”—and have us laughing all the way.
Here's an example from his blog:
Chicken Little feared the sky was falling. She also feared that when people “liked" a photo she posted, they didn’t really like it.
Alice in tumblr-Land seems to be hilarious and full of laughs. Looking forward to its release!
