Description

I loved how the two pieces went together for each poem and story as it gave a new level to my reading experience. We get to see each of the women in these stories in different ways and the reasons for their actions.

Generally I enjoy fairytale retellings and a couple of these had some nice turns-of-phrases, which would get me thinking. If you are a fan of fairytale retellings, especially ones which explore the classics in a more feminist perspective, then this collection is just perfect for you. But in this rousing new prose and poetry collection, Nikita Gill gives Once Upon a Time a much-needed modern makeover. But also, there’s story-telling from the feisty woman angle which is much needed to present a different take on the tired old cliches.

And after the prince is thrown out, the moon dragon and the princess continue to share the day and night and live happily ever after. Gill needed an editor or publisher that spoke up about how any boy/man that picks up her book is likely to be put off by the end.

Un kāpēc gan šajā laikā nepalutināt sevi ar kādu īsu stāstiņu vai dzejolīti, kad tik grūti smadzenēm likt pievērsties kādam tekstam.You will meet fearless princesses, a new kind of wolf lurking in the concrete jungle, and an independent Gretel who can bring down monsters on her own. Being upset about the inequality to date in our world is not really a useful thing to teach our children. Eine Welt, in welcher Prinzessinnen bestens in der Lage sind, sich selbst zu retten und in welcher die Grenzen von Schurken und Helden verschwimmen. The only poems I truly enjoyed were the ones that discussed racism, using beautiful metaphors to do so.

I’m 100% in favor of encouraging young women, but her advice became repetitive and ponderous by the twentieth tale. Imagine fairytales where the line between heroes and villains are blurred, where there is violence in supposed Prince Charming’s, and where the girl is independent, brave and smart- and can fight her own battles against monsters.Along with the writing are illustrations done by the author that accompanies each piece which was gorgeous. I kind of just started skimming when there were horrible blanket statements about men and shameful undertones towards women who would want a “traditional” lifestyle.
