One word changes everything
A familiar tale with a unique twist and beautiful illustrations, Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs by Fairy Tales Retold is the perfect book for any 4-8 year old.
Snow White's new adventure sees a traditional, patriarchal story transform into a modern empowering narrative, where princesses are rewarded for their bravery instead of their beauty.
"A wonderfully refreshing and thought-provoking addition to any collection of more traditionally told fairy tales, beautifully illustrated to spur the imagination of any child"
- Mel Giedroyc

What people say
Not so long ago, in a city you most likely have heard of and may even have been to, a soon to be middle-aged, balding dad was lying in bed reading good night stories to his little baby daughter.
While lying there with the little one in his arms, he noticed something strange. It seemed that all princesses in these fairy tales needed to be saved and that their most important characteristic was their beauty.
The big idea....
He did not like that at all. He didn’t want his daughter to grow up in this kind of world. So, while reading, he started changing little words here and there. All of a sudden a ‘beautiful’ princess became a ‘brave’ one and he saw the sparkle in his daughter’s eyes!
From this came the idea of Fairy Tales Retold, with a simple, yet powerful premise:
Changing one word can change everything!
Encouraged by the response to our idea we are starting to dream about the impact this project can have on children around the world and we can’t help but get excited!
So, if you enjoy our retelling, please spread the word about the new Snow White so that this story too will have its own fairy tale ending.
Fairy Tales Retold was created to inspire imaginations and to share beautiful stories that can be both read and heard.
Complementing the hardback book is a beautifully crafted audio-book. With an original score composed by David Alleckna and sound design by Rene Corbett, the audio version of Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs is a thrilling adventure of its own.
Available as a free download on iTunes, Spotify or your audio platform of choice, you too can follow Snow White on her magical journey by listening along.
