A Fairy Tale Revolution


A new series of feminist fairy tales, retold by acclaimed authors, for children and adults.
Fairy tales are rich, dark and compelling – and ripe for reframing. Vintage Classics presents a series of four remixed and revised stories, written with compassion and freedom at their core, making these age-old tales relevant to modern children.
Featuring: Cinderella Liberator by Rebecca Solnit, Hansel and Greta by Jeanette Winterson and Duckling by Kamila Shamsie.


  • Cinderella Liberator by Rebecca Solnit

In the kitchen, in her rags, Cinderella, longs to go to the ball. After all, there is nothing worse than not being invited to the party. Enter her fairy godmother...
But that is where the familiar story ends. Cinderella's transformation turns out to be much less about ballgowns, glass slippers and carriages, and much more about finding her truest self. Finally free from the kitchen cinders, who will she turn out to be?

  • Hansel and Greta by Jeanette Winterson

Greta lives with her brother Hansel on the edge of a great forest - a forest in danger of destruction. GreedyGuts, their aunt, doesn't appreciate Hansel and Greta's plans to replant trees and save the forest. In fact, she thinks they're horrible little vegetarians.
GreedyGuts doesn't give two hoots about nature. She favours luxury and living it up: eating, shopping and partying hard. And so she hatches a plan to get rid of the meddling, do-gooder kids...deep in the wood.

  • Duckling by Kamila Shamsie

On the farm, some eggs are hatching. A flock of sweet ducklings are popping out. But one duckling looks different from all the others…
Cast out and all alone, this odd duckling will need all her bravery and curiosity to survive. Her journey is a search for belonging, but what she finds is the right to be different.
