Power to the Princess

$27.99

What if princesses didn't always marry Prince Charming and live happily every after? A stunning anthology of 15 favourite fairy tales have been retold for a new generation.

These princesses are smart, funny, and kind, and can do anything they set their minds to. They are: Snow White - champion of real beauty; Sleeping Beauty - specialist on sleeping disorders; Thumbelina - music producer and advocate; Rapunzel - world-famous architect; Belle the Brave - undercover agent; Elisabeth and the Wild Swans - fashion designer; Cinderella - Prime Minister and businesswoman; Star and the 12 Dancers - dancer; The Goose Girl - stand-up comedian; Princess Sevinah (and the Pea) - founder of the Fairyland Dating Service; The Snow Queen - winter sports coach; The Little Mermaid - advocate for peace between mer-people and humans; Zade - storyteller (of 1001 tales) and businesswoman; Evangeline (The Frog Princess) - natural historian; Little Red Riding Hood environmentalist and Princess of the Wolves.

Focused on issues including self-image, confidence, LGBTQ, friendship, advocacy, and disability, these stories are perfect for sharing between parents and children, or for older princesses or princes to read by themselves. They teach 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!

Vita Weinstein Murrow, illustrated by Julia Bereciartu

Vita Murrow is an educator, an artist, a writer and a mum. Vita has a quirky sense of humour and an eye for the weird. When she was in 8th grade she was rejected from a special writers' retreat for kids. But that didn't stop her from pursuing her passion. Since then Vita has been a teacher, a producer, a film maker, a program director and even a puppeteer. She's also had jobs in an office which were pretty fun. She currently works as a children's author reinventing old stories for a new generation and crafting wordless pictures books together with her husband Ethan Murrow.
Julia Bereciartu (a.k.a. Juliabe) is a Spanish illustrator, born in 1980 in the northern city of San Sebastian. From an early age, she spent most of her time drawing, even if that meant using markers on her parents' new couch. She also loved reading books and dreamed of painting the illustrations that accompanied them when she grew up. She now lives in Madrid with her partner and their ginger cat, and has fulfilled her childhood dream of becoming an illustrator. Julia loves giving life to quirky, sassy characters and the occasional fluffy pet.
