ISBN: 9781409181590 (hbk.) :
Traditional fairytales are full of cliche and gender stereotypes: the silent Rapunzel, the beautiful sweet princesses, ugly jealous and bitter women, girls that need rescuing, men who take the glory and their new brides being forever grateful and subservient. Good mothers, obliging lovers and pretty objects. Nikita Gill's new prose and poetry collection rewrites the fairytale classics, and reworks their old-fashioned tropes into new empowering and inspirational stories.
