retellings of traditional
fairy tales

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 subtly different. Gone are damsels in distress, homogenous characters and patriarchal messages; replaced by exciting adventures, and some inspiring characters!

For all their magic and wonder, sometimes our original fairytales can fall short. At their worst, they can reinforce negative stereotypes and prejudices from centuries ago. 

We're trying to change this. 

Our characters, narratives and illustrations are designed to help children imagine a better world, full of exciting adventures where everyone matters and all voices are heard.

With our first book published, 2 more planned for 2022, a Kickstarter on the way, and many more exciting projects, we'd love you to join us on our journey!

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 inspiring adventures, inclusive characters and empowering narratives!

Our Story

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...

Endlich ein Märchen, was in diese Zeit passt :)

Schneewittchen neu erzählt ist wunderschön divers geschrieben! Es gibt viele erfrischende Ideen, wie beispielsweise die Darstellung des Königs als alleinerziehenden Papa. Auch das Ende ist perfekt!
Allein die Charaktere der Zwerge hätte noch etwas ausgeschmückt werden können.
Auch die Illustrationen sind wunderschön bunt und divers!
Insgesamt ist die Neuerzählung wirklich gelungen! :)
Ich freue mich auf eine Fortsetzung von Schneewittchen und/oder weiteren Märchen von euch!

Wollen Fortsetzung, sofort ;)

Hallo ihr Lieben

Und ein herzlcihes Danke für dieses wahnsinnig tolle Buch! Ich habe es am Holzmarkt für eine befreundete Familie gekauft und als ich sie nun an weihnachten nicht gesehen habe, gestern mit meinen Kindern gelesen (3 Jungs, 2x7 und 1x6 Jahre). Wir waren alle begeistert und kurz vor Ende mein kleiner: Gibt es da auch ein zweites von? (Im Sinne einer Fortsetzung).

Meine Frage: Gibt es schon ein neues Buch in der Reihe in Planung? Ich wollte mir gleich alle Märchen bestellen, sehe aber es ist bislang nur das eine?
Ich freue mich auf einen Hinweis oder eine Art Newsletter, wenn es wieder ein neues Buch gibt.
Ganz liebe Grüße und danke für das tolle Buch,
Annika

With little change HUGE difference

I got the book initially from a friend when my second child was born. I loved it so much that i bought 3 books to gift to mom-friends' children. The book has just a few small changes to the 'original' (because let's face it, folktales have a lot of different versions) but it makes it more inclusive to people of colour, empowering to both men and women and so much more 'active'. The protagonist is actually in charge of her own life, as are all the other persona. LOVE! I am Dutch, so I translate 'on the go', but if you need someone to translate it to Dutch so all Dutch parents can read it to their children I would love to do that!

Perfekte Ergänzung

Das Aktivity Book ist die perfekte Ergänzung zum Buch. Die neuen und wundervollen Stärken Schneewittchens werden nochmal deutlich und die Kinder können erkennen, wieviel auch sie schon können. Die liebevolle Aufbereitung zieht sich weiter durch.
Eine tolle Anregung auch, um das Buch häufiger durchzulesen. :)

Außerdem ist der Kund*innenservice großartig!

Une Blanche-neige inspirante (French edition)

Sehr gelungene, erfrischende Neuerzählung des berühmten Märchens. Als Übersetzerin & Sprachlehrerin wie auch als Mutter eines Kleinkindes bin ich ganz begeistert von diesem tollen Buch (französische Ausgabe). Eine inspirierende Geschichte für alle Kinder (Jungs inklusive) und jedes Alter. Eignet sich auch perfekt als Geschenk!
