UNA DELLE FIABE PIÙ AMATE DI SEMPRE RISCRITTA DALLA PALADINA DEL FEMMINISMO CONTEMPORANEO
C’era una volta una bambina di nome Cenerentola, costretta a servire una crudele matrigna e due indifferenti sorellastre. Finché un bel giorno incontra la sua fata madrina, va a un ballo e conosce il principe. È la fiaba che tutti conosciamo, ma è solo l’inizio di questa storia. Qui Cenerentola vuole farsi degli amici, imparare a non rinnegare il suo passato, a migliorare il presente e a realizzare i suoi sogni senza aver timore di chiedere aiuto agli altri. In sella al suo cavallo pomellato e con una fetta di torta sempre pronta da offrire, insegna a tutti la libertà di scegliere. Un classico con finale a sorpresa in cui tutti hanno diritto a una seconda possibilità.

I’ve been thinking about fairy tales a lot recently. Specifically feminist fairy tales. They aren’t a particularly new concept but in recent years there’s been a distinct increase in their numbers. At their best they can provide an innovative, sly commentary on everything that’s wrong with the Disne Leggi tutto
Overall: Meh. Cute fairytale but nothing super special about this. The Good: Absolutely love the illustrations. Also like that Cinderella wants to open a cake shop. The Bad: This story is nothing special. It is supposed to be a retelling of Cinderella and portray Cinderella as much stronger and liber Leggi tutto
2.5 stars. This is an odd little book that defies any number of easy categories. It's a picture book, but the pictures are recycled Arthur Rackham silhouettes from a much earlier, less liberated Cinderella, and the proportion of text to image is rather high. It's a fairy tale retelling, but an openl Leggi tutto
Cinderella is not a sisterhood friendly story. After all, the title character is in direct competition with her sisters (step or blood) to marry a man. It’s really not a sisterhood story. It might be a mother or daughter because both groups of girls are helped either by a mother or mother figure. So Leggi tutto
Oh my god this book is perfect! First off, it has the classic Arthur Rackham illustrations, which are perfect and beautiful, and the only recognizably classic thing about this book. There's no blaming of the stepsisters, who were raised to think and behave as they do, and they get a happy ending, be Leggi tutto
Best freakin' Cinderella ever. One of my favourite parts was the description of the people twirling in dresses and the people in satin suits. Not women twirling in dresses, not men in satin suits. People. Such a small change but a world of difference. :)
Cinderella Liberator reimagines the classic story with a feminist and egalitarian twist. Cinderella still is forced to work while her stepsisters laze about adorning themselves. Her stepmother is still evil and a fairy godmother intervenes. The bones of the story remain the same. But Solnit adds a fr Leggi tutto
Enlightened. Buy this for all the little girls in your life.
Retellings are not really my thing, so maybe it's just me. This is an odd book. While I did like the updated "woke" message of this story, it was a tad too heavy handed. I found the art more interesting than the actual text. It only takes about 30 minutes to read, so maybe it would make a good book
A modern retelling to Cinderella which is so amazing. The book didn't start off well , with the writing being repetitive and minor changes. But after the ball and prince finds our ella , the retelling begins. I loved this retelling and has almost all features to be expected in our day to day lives. A Leggi tutto
