'Make Fairyland Great Again' by N.T.O. Zamboni

We've had eras of fractured fairy tales rising in popularity, and it would appear that this is one of them.

This volume of fractured retellings was written in response to the results of the election last November and have proved even more popular than the author, N.T.O. Zamboni, expected.

Here's the blurb:
Normally, fairytales and fables teach important lessons:
    Build a house to fend off deplorable wolves.
    Don’t be tempted by candied false promises.
    Beware of golden-haired thieves stealing your porridge.
But this is not normal. Trump is not normal. We need updated, 21st-century fairytales to warn against new threats. Tremendous threats. Crude, demented, racist, misogynistic threats. 
Make Fairyland Great Again is a collection of twenty-one revised folk stories and parables: Sleeping Beauty, the Frog Prince, Ali Baba, Rapunzel, the Pied Piper, the Three Little Pigs, and many more! 
(However, just like Trump himself, this book is not appropriate for children.)
There are quite a number available online to read for free HERE and HERE.
Your (free) choices are:
  • The Ant and the Grasshopper
  • The Emperor's New Clothes (an incredibly popular fairy tale right now!)
  • Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves
  • The Frog Prince
  • Sleeping Beauty
Should you feel like reading even more or adding this book to your library (or supporting the author), you can find it HERE.
