    My 11 year old saw this book in a museum bookshop and wanted to buy it for her little sister who is five and loves princesses We bought it off as it was quite a bit cheaper and I didn t want to carry around this book all day as it is quite heavy and large It feels like a proper bedtime story book Now the issue is that my 11 year old really likes stories and enjoys reading them to her little sister but the little sister isn t quite so keen on them as they are quite a bit complex than the original stories The things that happen in them are quite hard for a five year old to understand For example in the story of Little Red Riding Hood she doesn t go to her grandmas, find a wolf, get eaten by the wolf and saved by a woodcutter but she goes to her grandmas, find a wolf there, then realises that they ve got nothing to eat in the wood because humans have been eating into the forest to use the land for building After the wolves are rehomed in another forest, she becomes a forest ranger who protects the forest and ensure replantation of the trees with the aim of reintroducing the walls back into the forest It s written with quite complex language and I would say isn t really suitable for a five year old I think maybe seven year olds would find this interesting and it has captured my 11 year old s attention which is saying something as she hasn t been into princesses since she was about six.

    This book is SO damn good 15 engaging and awesome stories about unexpectedly brilliant princesses, that are racially diverse, with stunning illustrations Smart, courageous, funny, strong girls doing wonderful things Honestly, my kids ADORE this book.This stupid princess narrative of get in danger, get rescued, live happily ever after is outdated and far too restrictive for little girls with big dreams in these modern days.I m also going to mention again how racially diverse the illustrations are as well, as it it so important for children s literature to feature female protagonists who aren t white The whole books feels warm, inclusive, and funny, without feeling performative Belle ends up working for the Fairyland Protection Office of Restorative Justice, protecting the community from curses Marisha and Melody a black Little Mermaid and Moana solve the problems of ocean pollution, clean water, and overcoming prejudice A black Rapunzel ends up becoming an architect, and with the help of her blind Prince, pioneers technologies to enrich places and spaces for all An Inuit Snow Queen learns to be kind to others and about reparations to those she has hurt Elizabeth from Elizabeth and the Wild Swans becomes an animal friendly fashion designer An Asian Cinderella finds her Prince, and becomes first a leader of the Business Affairs Council unifying workers and seeking fairness wherever things are unjust , and later becomes Prime Minister The Goose Girl, Greta, becomes a famous actress Star and The Twelve Dancers sees Star become a famous and innovative ballerina An Indian Princess called Sevinah in The Princess and the Pea ends up starting a dating agency with Prince Omar that delights in helping people in Fairyland find love and companionship without injury or insult An Arabian Princess Zade runs a textile empire A red head Thumbelina called Mai becomes a prominent musical producer, and then later a lawyer specialising in contracts and advocacy Filipa as Little Red Riding Hood becomes a ranger with the FEB Fairyland Environmental Bureau , campaigning for the right of wild wolves and making hunting them illegal Princess Aurora founds The Centre for the Study of Sleep and Circadian Differences with her formally evil fairy friend In Sleeping Beauty, Princess Neve and her formerly evil stepmother open a beauty spa, campaign for real beauty in Fairyland, and ban the creation of enhanced mirrors A Meso American Princess Evan helps her friend the Frog aka, Prince Pascal , and ends up becoming a zoologist with a special interest in rainforest frogs and campaigns against keeping animals in zoos.

    I brought this for my daughter for when she is older Stories suitable for children age 8 upwards and a great selection of historical and inspiring female figures Really well written with exciting and swift moving prose Illustrations are super too The red velvet flecked cover adds a touch of luxury I think this will become a family favourite to read at bedtime Also enjoyed by boys and girls in my year 3 class.

    I love these stories As a dad of a young girl I really hate the helpless princess stories and these really work against that idea and just keep going The stories are recognisable but changed and subtly and not so subtly weave in contemporary issues, such as the little mermaids love of surface worlds junk becomes commentary on our use of the oceans Oh, and the art work is beautiful.


  5. L Jay L Jay says:

    I Love this book Lovely modern versions on classic fairytales, where the princess s are finding their passion in life such as careers and helping the environment I ve only read 4 of the stories so far, in these stories they subtly touched on racism, included a gay marriage and all have strong female leads I look forward to reading the rest of the stories with my daughters.


  6. Mi Martinez Mi Martinez says:

    My daughter loves looking at the pictures in this book while we read the stories, it s a beautifully made book.


  7. HarryDyer HarryDyer says:

    Was this written for the American market Strange use of the English language for a children s book, even older children might find it a little odd.Great concept though.

    I applaud the sentiments behind this collection of traditional stories about fairies and princesses, reworked for children growing up today The message in each of the 15 stories is that girls can follow their dreams and talents you do not need to find a prince The hardback book itself is very attractive in a traditional way with a red velour cover embossed with gold lettering, but the full colour illustrations inside are executed in a modern way with sassy looking characters that will appeal to streetwise kids today.The idea behind each story is to take a traditional tale and give it a modern twist with a positive ending which MAY involve the heroine marrying, but she always has a fulfilling career and knows the value of friendships with both sexes It is a politically correct book the 7 dwarves become gnomes, the beast in Beauty and the Beast is actually pretty cool, the Little Mermaid marries a human girl In our household we enjoyed the range of fulfilling roles for girls Rapunzel becomes an architect, Cinder Ella works to improve the rights of female workers like cleaners, Little Red Riding Hood becomes an environmentalist to make forests better places for the hungry wolves. At the same time it is good that the male characters are not portrayed as wimps or baddies Each story is a reasonable length for a bedtime read, we enjoyed with the grandchildren dipping into the book for occasional stories rather than reading it straight through There is plenty of humour one of our favourites is Vita Murrow s retelling of the Princess and the Pea The author is based in the USA, her illustrator is Spanish There are some Americanisms in the text family are your folk , Beauty makes cookie dough but these will be familiar to all children, and some things look like they have been adapted for the UK market for example there is a reference to political MPs The book is marketed at the 5 to 8 age range, though some of the vocabulary would need explaining to 5 year olds advocate, augmented, mulled over, to be in sync with etc Most importantly, to really appreciate the plot twists and the humour in these stories you need a good grounding in the original traditional tales so I would suggest 7 9s as a appropriate audience And I hope boys will enjoy it as well as the girls

    I was asked if I d like to review the Power to the Princess by Vita Murrowa and Julia Bereciartu, I said yes as I knew my girls would love the book.First off all let me point out that these stories are nothing to do with the Disney Princesses just in case you were wondering.This is a lovely hardback book, which has 96 pages in total The given reading age for 5 8 years old.You ll find that this book has 15 stories about different Princesses which have all been given a new twist and brought up to date.Everyone thinks that Princesses do very little about from marrying a prince and pampering themselves all day long.This book shows the youngsters of today that Princesses have depth and aren t as shallow as you think, the stories are Belle the Brave The Little Mermaid Rapunzel The Snow Queen Elizabeth and the Wild Swans Cinderella The Goose Girl Star and the Twelve Dancers The Princess and the Pea Zade and the 1001 Ideas Thumbelina Little Red Riding Hood Sleeping Beauty Snow White Evangeline and the Frog PrinceChildren of today only have to look at both HRH Prince William, HRH Prince Harry and their wives as they ve all had jobs, just like other members of the Royal family.I love how the author, Vita Murrow, has written this book and the depth she s given her characters Julia Bereciartu has provided the book with some lovely colourful illustrations.My girls both enjoyed the stories and the illustrations.What everyone should remember is that today s female, whether young or old, have the right to do things than just being tried to the kitchen sink, being a wife and having children.This book is showing children, whether you re female or male that you can do anything if you set your mind to, and that if you believe in yourself then anything is possible Thankfully, there are less barriers now then what there were for females of today.I can recommend this book.

    I am torn between saying this book is okay and that I don t like it I am supportive of the idea of removing gender stereotyping and encouraging aspiration in girls to compete in male dominated professions but these are old classic fairy tales I happen to like Disney and have grown up loving the Prince Charming stories and being swept off your feet It is fantasy, it is dress up, it is fun and adventure I also don t see why marrying the man of your dreams seems to be such a bad thing I married the man of my dreams, but it makes me no less an independent woman with aspirations of my own I m worried that we are now actually taking a step too far in making everything a gender equality issue, when there need not be one.I understand the premise and the stories are retold to give the princesses independence, using their stories to guide who they become, like the Little Mermaid as a peace ambassador, Sleeping Beauty a sleep therapist, Belle becomes a detective who protects and serves the community by stopping the threat of curses, Rapunzel becomes an architect and so on Many of the stories don t really work in the way they are retold and seem silly to be honest.I think the book is being aimed at girls around 8 , assuming the are confident readers.

    Slapping the metoo tag on anything these days unfortunately causes a lot of people to be dismissive, angry, or display ignorant, frothing posturing It s frustrating because this is a positive movement and message On the flip side, it s not exactly an accurate tag to apply to a collection of revisionist fairy tales for girls, told from the female perspective This is accurately a set of stories aimed at young women to show them that girls can be just as brave, strong, and resourceful as the men are shown to be traditionally in these stories, setting them up for a life of questioning and understanding rather than blindly accepting male authority and influence Most of the stories will be familiar to you classic tales like Beauty And The Beast, Snow White etc, told with a twist, and mixed with lesser known cultural tales or told from a different cultural perspective.The presentation of the book is lovely, a smooth, velvet style cover with glossy golden writing, and an inspirational blurb on the back should entice thoughtful readers and parents The text is laid out plainly and each story is bolstered by neat and colourful artwork Ever since I was young, I enjoyed retelling of old stories and myths, some told in modern times or with some other twist This continues that tradition and is a book that, as a boy, I would have enjoyed, and as a father of two girls have now enjoyed sharing with my daughters.
