"Brilliant." -Kirkus Reviews, starred review
What if princesses didn't always marry Prince Charming and live happily ever after? In this stunning anthology - elegantly presented in a red, clothbound hard cover with gold-toned metallic debossing - 15 favourite fairytales have been retold for a new generation. These princesses are smart, funny and kind, and can do anything they set their minds to.
Focused on issues including self-image, confidence, LGBTQ, friendship, advocacy and disability, these stories are perfect for sharing between parents and children, or for older princesses or princes to read by themselves. They teach that a princess is a person who seeks to help others, is open to learning new things, and looks for ways to add purpose to their lives and the lives of those around them.
