Forget princesses just waiting around passively for their princes to turn up… In this excellent anthology, 15 favourite fairytales have been retold so that the princesses are smart, funny and kind, and can do anything they set their minds too. For example, Rapunzel is a world-famous architect, Snow White is a champion of real beauty and Belle is an undercover agent.
The stories focus on different issues such as self-image, confidence, LGBTQ, friendship, advocacy and disability, so they’re perfect talking points between parents and kids, or for older kids 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 those around them. What a super gift!
