More Than Once Upon a Time” is a darkly comic tale of abuse and revenge. Written and illustrated as if by a child, Salkind handles the disturbing subject matter with a subversive intelligence fueled by her years as a stand-up comedian and writer for Roseanne. Though it's a horrific story of rape, lies and dissociation, the story is infused with love and the desire for justice, somehow making what could be a painful read, funny; all in 38 brilliantly illustrated pages. It imagines what children would say, if they could--in language blissfully free of the multi-syllabic stuff we tend to see in adult books that try to accomplish in hundreds of pages what this book does in a few dozen. This special epub edition includes a shocking new second ending not available in an earlier print edition. You’ll never look at children’s writing paper the same.
