Fierce Fairytales (Hardback)Nikita Gill (author)
Wild Ember’s author reinvents 'Once Upon a Time' in a sumptuous collection of illustrated poems and stories. A refreshing, inspiring feast of artistry and imagination.
Feminist Fairytales for Young and Old.
Await no princes to save you
through their lips touching yours
whilst you are in unwilling slumber.
Wake each other up instead.
Reimagining traditional tales, this empowering collection of stories, poems and beautiful hand-drawn illustrations gives Once Upon a Time a much-needed modern makeover.
Gone are the gender stereotypes of obliging lovers, violent men and girls that need rescuing. Instead, lines blur between heroes and villains and you'll meet brave princesses, a new kind of wolf lurking in the concrete jungle and a courageous Gretel who can bring down monsters on her own.
