Summary

A collection of twelve dark, feminist retellings of traditional fairytales from one of Ireland's leading writers for young people.

Bewitched retellings of classic fairy-tales with brave and resilient heroines. Tales of blood and intrigue, betrayal and enchantment from a leading Irish YA author - not for the faint-hearted or damsels in distress.

NOTE: Contains scenes of violence, implied abuse and incest.

Book of the week

Unsettling from the outset these atmospheric, lyrical re-workings of familiar tales are startling in their inventiveness & demand to be savoured. A truly outstanding & memorable collection for thoughtful teens with definite crossover appeal.

Content advisory

Contains scenes of violence, implied abuse and incest.
