More About This Title David Roberts' Delightfully Different Fairytales


A treasury of fairy tales with a difference – feminist, sparky and set in different decades of the 20th century, with funky clothes and recognisable settings. A stunning collaboration between the brilliant illustrator David Roberts (famous for Iggy Peck, Architect and Rosie Revere, Engineer amongst others) and his talented writer sister Lynn, this special collection includes: a feminist Sleeping Beauty, set in the 1950s (and 2950s), in a story populated entirely with women and girls (no princes needed here!), a 1970s Rapunzel whose friend plays in a rock band, and a 1930s-set Cinderella with flapper girls and a fashion-conscious fairy godmother. These are all deliciously, delightfully different takes on the fairy tales we all know.
