Ask a question about this product

Anthology editor Pam Laskin puts together an original collection of female-centered
folk/fairytales that speaks directly to issues facing today's girls and young women. At times both poignant and bold, these exciting, new writers bring a fresh, imaginative perspective to a classic genre. A potent antidote to the noxious “Ophelia” spell! A secret weapon for heroic young women, wherever they may do battle!

-Suzanne Weyn, author of The Night Dance: A retelling of the Twelve Dancing Princesses
and Water Song: A Retelling of the Frog Prince.

These stories are important and timely—doing what Fairytales have always intended to do, make the reader think and see the world from a new perspective. Kudos to the women in this book who give voice to worlds and people too long silenced.

- Jacqueline Woodson, author of Hush, Miracle’s Boys, and If You Come Softly
