In her business law class, one of my daughter’s assignments was to critique the gender roles in a fairy tale and to relate it to current business situations. When she asked me my opinion on what fairy tale to choose, it made me wonder if there were any feminist fairy tales. That search led me to James Finn Garner’s books. He has rewritten classic fairy tales in a politically correct manner, which he has done in both an amusing and thought provoking manner. So far, this volume is my favorite!
