Book Overview

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.

   Nikita
Tomorrow or today or always your day is a warrior, you teach the sand to be wet, you teach the rain to be parched, you are a ninth color to be lost I recently wrote to a friend Marlon James that i miss him just like Plump misses Prince. So thank you for your birth day. April 20, 2020 : Yours Leopoldo is born.

   Lovely little book. Not your everyday fairy tale.
Rather small for the price, but worth it in the end. Why the wicked stepmother is so mean? Why the stepsisters are so nasty to the prettier Cinderella. Halfway Through... it's a book to come back to since it is short storytelling.

   Inspiring and thought provoking
At this point, I read a little over half of the book. The stories are deep, but they are short and really add to the classic fairy tales we grew up with. Unexpected twists and different ways to look at things, such as the motives of the wicked step sisters from Cinderella and an alternative ending for Miss Sleeping Beauty, are both inspiring and have helped me to think about how each of us can become good or bad as a means to protect themselves. I love this book absolutely! I want to buy a few more copies just to hand them over to friends and leave in waiting rooms.

   Not for me
Writing felt forced, instead of empowered, I felt put off. Guess it is just not my kind of poetry.

   Empowering women of all ages to be all they can be. Fairy tales made fierce, be strong fearless!
Book is gorgeous! The cover is excellent in design, and the illustrations are a nice addition. Nikita has been a stunner! She has re-written old stories with a positive twist to support young females, to strengthen their confidence in themselves. Providing positive affirmation for young women. Adding her own fierce stories to the mix. Very well done, a must have for your daughters!

   Poetry for people who don't like poetry
I have never been into poetry, but this collection is full of works that speak to me. There are traditional stories mixed with more short poetry, which made it easier to read for me.

   Empowering Read
Nikita is the type of writer that can stir up your bones and make you feel like you can do anything! This collection was empowering and a must-read for wmxn. You can then rewrite your story. Not every man wants to be woken up by a prince with a kiss. I adore how she turns traditional fairytales on their head and gives them a modern and brilliant twist.

I am not sure if I need to sit with Nikita's books just because they are soooooo depressing. I heard the author on NPR... thought it would be interesting, but not. It will pass it on.
