High-Five to the Hero

Author(s): Vita Murrow

Young Adult | No Category | Education Theory

What if heroes were celebrated for the power of their hearts instead of their swords? In this stunning anthology - elegantly presented in a green, clothbound hard cover with gold-toned metallic debossing - 15 favorite fairytales have been retold for a new generation.

Meet King Arthur, who rules by listening to others, and Prince Charming, who really wishes people wouldn't typecast him, in this stereotype-busting follow-up to Power to the Princess. Focused on issues including self-image, confidence, LGBTQ, friendship, advocacy, and disability, these stories are perfect for sharing between parents and children, or for older heroes and heroines to read by themselves.

Get reacquainted with these caring, considerate, and responsible heroes:

  • King Arthur

  • Tom Thumb

  • The Emperor With New Clothes

  • Jack and the Beanstalk
