Read full description of the books:
Talk about preachy. Honestly, if these are feminist retellings of fairy tales then why are most of the helpers still male? Why can’t some of the dwarves, for instance, be female dwarves? It’s great that the Queen helps Snow, but seriously all male dwarves? And why are most of the men in the stories undeserving idiots? Why not totally reverse the beauty and the beast theme, instead of making them both ugly, and the beast still a jerk?
And how come every woman seems to be wearing a dress, and is white?
And the combining of different time periods in each tale is just confusing.
Honesty there are better feminist fairy tale collections out there, including ones with original work but also ones that have original folk and fairy tales in them.
