David Roberts' Delightfully Different Fairy Tales

Out of stock - dispatches within 5-7 business days


A treasury of fairy tales with a difference - feminist, sparky and set in different decades of the 20th century, with funky clothes and recognisable settings. A stunning collaboration between the brilliant illustrator David Roberts and his talented writer sister Lynn.

This special collection includes:

  • a feminist Sleeping Beauty, set in the 1950s (and 2950s), in a story
  • populated entirely with women and girls (no princes needed here!)
  • a 1970s Rapunzel whose friend plays in a rock band
  • a 1920s-set Cinderella with flapper girls and a fashion-conscious fairy godmother.

These are all deliciously, delightfully different takes on the fairy tales we all know.
