High-Five to the Hero : 15 favourite fairytales retold with boy power Hardback


What if heroes were celebrated for the power of their hearts instead of their swords?

In this stunning anthology - elegantly presented in a green, clothbound hard cover with gold-toned metallic debossing - 15 favourite fairytales have been retold for a new generation. Meet King Arthur, who rules by listening to others, and Prince Charming, who really wishes people wouldn't typecast him, in this stereotype-busting follow-up to Power to the Princess.

Focused on issues including self-image, confidence, LGBTQ, friendship, advocacy and disability, these stories are perfect for sharing between parents and children, or for older heroes and heroines to read by themselves.
