An emboldening, exquisitely illustrated picture book of reimagined fairy tales with a feminist twist, perfect for fans of the classic stories, Disney lovers, and readers of Goodnight Stories for Rebel Girls!
They may be small, but they’re big of heart— kind and cheerful, brave and smart. And so with courage, hope, and laughter they make their own “happily ever after.”
In this treasury of modern fairy tales, the heroines make their own way to happily ever after, and there isn’t a damsel in distress in sight! Rapunzel, Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, and Thumbelina don’t let fear or self-doubt hold them back. Using their wits, bravery, honesty, and kindness, they problem-solve their way out of tricky situations. See how Rapunzel invents her way out of her tower or Red Riding Hood outsmarts the wolf!
Each story has a modern twist, a different illustrator, and all the charm of a classic storybook. This sweet and accessible book is perfect for young princes and princesses learning to have courage and follow their hearts.---from the publisher
