From the author of Fantastically Great Women Who Changed the World comes a handsome volume of subversive fairy tales where the female lead calls the shots.

Once known, now largely forgotten, these empowering fairy tales have been brought together to inspire a new generation of readers.
Discover heroines who outwit giants, fight evil, awaken sleeping princes and, of course, live happily ever after. With a foreword by Kate Pankhurst, author of Fantastically Great Women who Changed the World.
