What to expect

The Princess and the Prick is a feminist humour and gift book for adults.

May I kiss you, he said.
She didn't answer. She was asleep.
So he kissed her anyway.
SLEEPING BEAUTY

Revisit childhood classics, but not as you remember them. Familiar fables are turned on their heads as your beloved heroines finally have their say.

Think Ladybird for Adults or Enid Blyton spoofs; The Princess and the Prick flips fairy tales, nursery rhymes and children’s books on their head. Retold through a feminist lens as one liners, verses and rhyming couplets, and highlighting the sexism endemic in stories we grew up with, these classic tales will never be the same again…
