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 favorite 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.
