"Mirror, mirror on the wall. Who's the 

bravest of them all?"

The stories we tell our children have never been more important.


Fairy Tales Retold takes old classics and gives them a modern twist for today’s world. The original characters and spirit of each story remain - but the imagery, narrative, and values are radically different.


Gone are damsels in distress, homogenous characters and patriarchal messages; replaced by thrilling adventures, vibrant characters and empowering narratives!


"Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs- a modern retelling"

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs rewritt by Fairy tales Retoldn

Our first book, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs was published to critical acclaim in December 2019.


Awarded the 2020 Kimi Seal for outstanding diversity in children’s books, it was featured in national and international media for its bold and dynamic retelling of a well-known classic.  


The beautifully-illustrated, 56-page hardback sees Snow White embark on a modern adventure, where princesses are rewarded for their bravery instead of their beauty.


Accompanied by a new cast of characters, including seven dwarves from each of the seven continents, it is the perfect story to excite and inspire young children of all ages.
