From former Waterstones Children’s Laureate Malorie Blackman comes a dazzling feminist retelling of Bluebeard, adorned with striking illustrations from Laura Barrett.
Malorie Blackman retells 'Bluebeard'. A Fairy Tale Revolution is here to remix and revive our favourite stories. These twists on familiar tales make the perfect Christmas gift.
'Please don't even try to get down to the basement. Just leave it alone - okay? Otherwise you'll ruin things for both of us...'
Nia has met the man she wants to marry. Marcus is kind, clever and handsome, with a beard so dark it is nearly blue-black. Nia demands a single promise from him - that Marcus will never enter her study in the basement, her private space.
But when Marcus's curiosity begins to mount Nia feels more and more uneasy. Will he betray her? Can he accept that no means no? Can a woman ever have a room of her own?
