Children's Book Blogging, Not Recommended Edition

This book is the worst version of fairy tales I've ever seen. The pictures bear almost no relation to the rhymes. (Unless you think Little Miss Muffet is a monkey, eating bananas, and the spider is another monkey or a turtle.)

I think that this would be forgivable if the book were some generic, random book, but it's labeled Fisher Price.

I think these illustrations match the visual theme of their infant activity gym. (I am distressed that I instantly recognized that even though we don't even own that gym.) I guess branding trumped sense in this case.

I was wondering what could have possibly induced these illustration choices!
