An Isfits book.
Isfits . . . postmodern fairy tales and cautionary confessions.
Cinderella scratched a new line on the wall every night when the clock struck twelve. For 999 nights, she'd sworn to herself that she wouldn't stay long enough to see 1000. Cinderella heard the old man and the old woman clunking up the stairs. The clock began to chime. Cinderella was out of time. She had a decision to make---the kind of decision that could change her life or take it from her.
What Is Isfits?
A cast of characters sampled from icons of adolescence, re-imagined.
A graphic novel, like you've never seen before.
This eBook is 1/6th the full length graphic novel. Read it in about 5 minutes. Enjoy for years.
My take: Bizarre. That's my first reaction following reading Cinderella Goes to the Potty. I love the illustrations, and the concept—a twist on classic fairy tales—is fun. But it's also a very strange and dark graphic novel (kind of Tim Burton-esque), and I'm not sure how appropriate it is for children. I would be interested in reading more of these Isfits graphic novels, but I wouldn't read them to young children. (I'd say they're for ages 12 and up.)
My rating: 3-1/2 stars

About the giveaway:
Justin Blaney to help him spread the word about his fun new book series, Isfits.
He's launching the series with a Kickstarter campaign---he wants to turn these fun/unique stories into full-color, hardback, glossy-paged books.
Who's Justin? Justin Blaney is a virtuoso. He does a little of everything, but one of the coolest things he does (besides writing amazing stories) is run an organization called Innovate for Jesus (resources for pastors, ministry leaders, non profits, authors, etc.). The site features people like Francis Chan, Rick Warren, Pete Wilson, Matt Chandler, Mary DeMuth, and more.
Besides the super cool graphics, what is special about Isfits? Justin is releasing his Isfits series in the general kids book market rather than as Christian releases. His hope is to spread the gospel message to children who aren't normally exposed to Christian content.
