A Fairytale Re-formed
When our princess is captured by a witch and held captive in a tower far from her comforts and kingdom, naturally a prince is sent to save her.
The princess has just interrupted this blurb to let us know that…
“She’s not looking for a rescue - but a freedom!”
So, throw off your ideas of predictable romance and classical endings, and follow a little princess on her courageous adventure of curiosity, acceptance and bliss.
This book reminds us that when imagery and lore become ubiquitous they present the danger to inoculate.
An inclusive, refreshing journey to the heart of innocent desire. The pure, unabashed, irrevocable force of love.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Lifelong friends Julie Sype and Mark Uhre have cheerfully upended the classic “damsel in distress” story—and the results will delight readers of every age. Once Upon a Story You've Always Been Told unfolds in simple verse with whimsical illustrations, but the story packs a real punch, inviting readers to consider a refreshingly self-actualised path for the princess trapped in a tower. It’s a playful yet powerful reminder that everyone deserves to write their very own happy ending.
Thank you for writing a book to represent my daughter and all the princess lesbians.
So cute. Loving it.
This story melt my heart for real.
I feel this is a little bit inappropriate for a child books. I thought it was cute(and personally still did) up until the big reveal. Maybe for children who are older and ready to decide what gender they like...
