This book holds a series of short stories which are basically a new modern and feminist spin on old fairy tales. Do you know Beauty and the Beast? Of course you do, but what about Ugly and the Beast? Do you know Snow White? What about Snow Night? Little White Riding Hood? The Littlest Mermaid? Cinder-Helle? The Three Little Pinks? This book sheds a light on fairy tales that will no longer have your girls think, 'I'm the damsel in distress, where's my prince charming?' but dare them to think, 'I'm a damsel, but does that mean I have to be in distress?' And hence, it's exactly what the name implies, Feminist Fairy Tales.

(Needless to say, I love it, and when I have children, male or female, they are so reading this.)

Vicent Martín bonet You clearly don't know about fairy tales if you think this drivel was any good. I hope you lobotomized the kiddies afterwards.
