about

Poet, writer, and Instagram sensation Nikita Gill returns with a collection of fairytales poetically retold for a new generation of women.

Traditional fairytales are rife with cliches and gender stereotypes: beautiful, silent princesses; ugly, jealous, and bitter villainesses; girls who need rescuing; and men who take all the glory.

But in this rousing new prose and poetry collection, Nikita Gill gives Once Upon a Time a much-needed modern makeover. Through her gorgeous reimagining of fairytale classics and spellbinding original tales, she dismantles the old-fashioned tropes that have been ingrained in our minds. In this book, gone are the docile women and male saviors. Instead, lines blur between heroes and villains. You will meet fearless princesses, a new kind of wolf lurking in the concrete jungle, and an independent Gretel who can bring down monsters on her own.

Complete with beautifully hand-drawn illustrations by Gill herself, Fierce Fairytales is an empowering collection of poems and stories for a new generation.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beautiful. I can't remember the last time I read poetry, but this one was pretty beautiful and impactful. There are some that had a lasting effect more than others, and I'm glad I picked this up.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not for me! Just not for me. I was hoping/thinking it was something different, but the poems/story mixed of genre was never really my taste. I said it many times, I don't know much about poetry, for poetry speak to you or not. This one didn't. Doesn't me it's bad, but it wasn't for me!
