Gender Swapped Fairy Tales
Gender Swapped Fairy Tales | Karrie Fransman, Jonathan Plackett
3 posts | 1 read | 4 to read
Discover a collection of fairy tales unlike the ones you've read before . . . Once upon a time, in the middle of winter, a King sat at a window and sewed. As he sewed and gazed out onto the landscape, he pricked his finger with the needle, and three drops of blood fell onto the snow outside. People have been telling fairy tales to their children for hundreds of years. And for almost as long, people have been rewriting those fairy tales - to help their children imagine a world where they are the heroes. Karrie and Jon were reading their child these stories when they hit upon a dilemma, something previous versions of these stories were missing, and so they decided to make one vital change.. They haven't rewritten the stories in this book. They haven't reimagined endings, or reinvented characters. What they have done is switch all the genders. It might not sound like that much of a change, but you'll be dazzled by the world this swap creates - and amazed by the new characters you're about to discover.

Love the cover, love the concept, but is this the best title you could come up with? I‘d be all over a book called ‘Let down your beard‘ lol

So obsessed with this cover and concept: fairy tales gender swapped with an algorithm designed to chance pronouns and certain other gender specific words (son, daughter, mother, father, etc.). The illustrations from Karrie Fransman are absolutely stunning, too. Love when I come across incredible books like this when researching for Book Riot articles.

This was such a fascinating book! The Fairy Tales felt new simply by swapping the genders, however the choice to use the Fairy Books meant that tgere was an unnecessary Christian influence.

Redfae Would it be suitable for children? 2y
Vee_Bookish It's exactly the same stories just gender swapped so I would say yes 🤔 2y
