What if princesses didn't always marry Prince Charming and live happily every after? This stunning anthology features 15 favorite fairytales retold for a new generation. From Sleeping Beauty who becomes a world-famous sleep disorder specialist to Cinderella who goes on to become Prime Minister to Little Red Riding Hood, the environmentalist and Princess of the Wolves, these princesses are smart, funny, and kind, and can do anything they set their minds to. Retold to create positive role models for children, these feisty, funny fairytales focus on issues such as self-image, confidence, LGBTQ, friendship, advocacy, and disability, teaching that a princess is a person who seeks to help others, is open to learning new things, and looks for ways to add purpose to their lives and the lives of those around them. Power to the princess! -- from Amazon.

Cute set of fairytale retellings. Some stories try too hard to shoehorn in a message (like a fairly heavyhanded environmental message in The Little Mermaid's retelling), but they work their best when they update with whimsical details like Belle and the Beast bonding over cookie butter and a mutual love of swing dancing.
