Cinderella Liberator

Rebecca Solnit radicalizes a classic fairytale with a fresh, feminist Cinderella and new plot twists that will inspire young readers to change the world.

Praise for Rebecca Solnit:

“Essential feminist reading.” —New Republic

“The voice of the resistance.” —New York Times Magazine

“Rebecca Solnit is a treasure.” —Marketplace

In this modern twist on the classic story, Cinderella, who would rather just be Ella, meets her fairy godmother, goes to a ball, and makes friends with a prince. But that is where the familiar story ends. Instead of waiting to be rescued, Cinderella learns that she can save herself and those around her by being true to herself and standing up for what she believes.

In her debut children’s book, Rebecca Solnit updates a classic fairytale with a fresh, feminist Cinderella and new plot twists that will inspire young readers to change the world, featuring gorgeous silhouettes from Arthur Rackham on each page.

Rebecca Solnit is the author of more than twenty books including Men Explain Things to Me, Call Them by Their True Names, Hope in the Dark, and The Mother of All Questions.

Arthur Rackham (1867–1939) was a prominent British illustrator of many classic children’s books from The Fairy Tales of the Brothers Grimm to Sleeping Beauty. His watercolor silhouettes were featured in the original edition of Cinderella.
