Publisher's Summary

What makes those cookies so gosh-darned yummy?

"You need to get a job," Father said to his children. "You're in your mid-20s. Time to get out my house." And so they did.

Hansel and Gretel are two long-haul truckers, a brother and sister team, whose work order is simple: Deliver a truckload of cookies across country to an old witch in the forest. They accept the job, despite the rumors that those who deliver cookies sometimes don't make it back. When they stop to pick up their load, they notice something isn't right. Pastries shouldn't be bleeding and screaming and trying to escape their boxes.

Years ago, a rather ugly child lived in an orphanage. She was picked on mercilessly until one by one the orphans went missing. Now an old witch with a cookie addiction, she sits alone in her mansion made of sweets, waiting for her delivery of baked goods with the one special ingredient in them.

Will Hansel and Gretel make their delivery on time? Will they make it out alive? Will Hansel finally admit that Gretel is the better driver?

Indulge your appetite and feast your eyes on this new twist on an age-old tale.

Fantastically Deranged

Would you listen to C Is for Cookie again? Why?

Yes. This is definitely one to share with friends who also enjoy black humor.

What did you like best about this story?

The bizarre observations. Look out for cavernous belly buttons!

Any additional comments?

The narrator, David S. Dear, did a great job voicing this title.

This was worth the time spent listening to it. I will definitely be looking for other titles from this author/narrator duo.

Fairy tales done right!!

I received this book for free in exchange for a voluntarily unbiased review.

This is the first book from this author and found his take on the genre refreshing. Had a Creepshow vibe to it and could easily be a tv show I would watch. This short story was fun and ending was not expected.

The narrator was fine but reminds me if Chris from Family Guy. He is fun to listen too and he brought the characters alive.

Beware the cookies!!!!

Not for kids but quite entertaining

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

This was a short and oddball take on Hansel and Gretel. For what it was, it was humorous and entertaining. Not for kids, though!

An odd author

What made the experience of listening to C Is for Cookie the most enjoyable?

C is for Cookie takes a Hansel and Gretel story and applies Richard's wackiness to it, complete with fart jokes, gross-outs and insanity. A fun read/listen.

Any additional comments?

All of Marc Richard's books have an oddness to them that, if one is so inclined to the odd, is easy to appreciate, simply for the out there way he comes up with the tales. The narrator, David S. Dear, does a great job in keeping up the tongue-in-cheek absurdity of it all.

Stop! Not for Kidlet Ears! 😊

Although it may look like it, this is not your toddler’s alphabet book. Heck, the main characters are Hansel and Gretel, but this is closer to the scary stories once referred to as “fairy tales”! It is far from the Disney type fables that many of us grew up with.

Marc Richards has taken the ABC’s and lore we are familiar and gave them a twist with an adult edge. They are short reads but amusing because of the creative way they have been re-imagined. They don’t have to be read in order, so pick any one up for a fun quick read.

Well woven

I did not know what to expect when I started this book and what I got was some fabulous horror that does not take itself seriously. I was laughing out loud at parts of this book, the horror was a more grizzly Hansel and Gretel probably closer to what the Brothers Grimm would have originally written. But the genius to this story was the humor. I did not know what I wanted to listen to last night and this fit the bill perfectly.

Interesting take on an old fairy tale

I liked the creativeness of the story and the authors retelling of the old Hansel and Gretel tale. The story was interesting but I felt like it was trying too hard to be funny. I think if the author focused solely on the writing and not trying to throw in as many jokes I'd enjoy it more. Overall it's not a bad book just nothing great.
