Guy Wetmore Carryl (1873-1904) was an American humorist and poet. When he was only 20 years old he had his first article published in The New York Times. During his college years he had written plays for amateur performances. After graduation, in 1896 he became a staff writer for Munsey's Magazine under Frank Munsey and he was later promoted to managing editor of the magazine. Later he went to work for Harper's Magazine and was sent to Paris. While in Paris he wrote for Life, Outing, Munsey's, and Collier's, as well as his own independent writings. Some of Carryl's more well-known works were his humorous poems that were parodies of Aesop's Fables, such as The Sycophantic Fox and the Gullible Raven and of Mother Goose Nursery Rhymes, such as The Embarrassing Episode of Little Miss Muffet, poems which are still popular today. He also wrote a number of humorous parodies of Grimm's Fairy Tales, such as How Little Red Riding Hood Came To Be Eaten and How Fair Cinderella Disposed of Her Shoe. His humorous poems usually ended with a pun on the words used in the moral of the story.
