Once upon a time there lived... a beautiful prince who kissed a frog. A cinder-smudged child who hid a secret. A princess who climbed a long braid of golden hair for love. A thumb-sized boy with the courage of a giant. And a valiant little tailor whose wit was as sharp as her needle.
These stories and many more await you in this delightful collection of classic fairy tales, lovingly retold and featuring characters who receive wonderfully queer happily-ever-afters! Let these new takes on the Brothers Grimm warm your heart and nurture your yearning to see yourself reflected in beloved favorites.
"Mardoll has removed instances of racism, antisemitism, and Christian moralizing while introducing queer and disabled characters... a welcome, clever update of fairy tales." --Kirkus Reviews
Xie did it again!
Ana smoothly and deftly builds characters to match myself and others who rarely see ourselves in the stories we love. I’ve followed xer work since finding xer on Twitter a few years ago, and I’ve found myself hopefully awaiting each new release and clutching the characters that look like me close to my heart. Thanks again, Ana
