A strong affirmation of women's power to say no to out of control patriarchal power. The author encourages women to develop a new moral system in an otherwise doomed world.

I enjoy fairy tales and I am a feminist but after four of these stories I'd had enough of this book. Retelling traditional tales well takes subtlety and skill, both of which Walker's writing lacks. Lavine gets it right with "Fairest" and "Ella Enchanted."

Thoroughly enjoyed these stories and the socially conscious twist. Imagine how life would have been if we grew up with these instead of the usual tales which don't do much for girls/women.
