Remapping Wonderland cover artwork

30 Fairytales
Retold by 27 BIPOC Authors
Illustrated by 50+ Artists

It’s important for readers to see themselves reflected on the page. Remapping Wonderland features retellings of classic fairytales written by BIPOC authors and showcasing BIPOC and LGBTQ+ characters, so readers of color can see themselves as the heroines, kings, and androgynous genies of their own happily-ever-afters. Featuring 30 classic fairytales, from Cinderella to Rapunzel to Little Red Riding Hood, retold by 27 authors in concepts ranging from wildly absurd to painfully realistic to bizarrely humorous to arousingly sexual, this anthology is a journey through a fantastical land of make-believe that vividly reflects the human spirit and the colorful world in which we live.

A percentage of the proceeds from the book will go to Room to Read.

This is an adult fairytale book; please use your own discretion for age appropriateness of younger readers.

Included Fairytales:
1,001 Nights, The Ant & the Grasshopper, Beauty & the Beast, Bluebeard, Cinderella, The Creation Myth, The Gingerbread Man, Godfather Death, Goldilocks & the Three Bears, The Goose Girl, Hansel & Gretel, Huli Jing, King Midas & the Golden Touch, Kumiho, Kupti & Imani, The Little Match Girl, The Little Mermaid, Little Red Riding Hood, The Metal Pig, The Pied Piper of Hamelin, Pinocchio, The Princess & the Pea, Rapunzel, Rumpelstiltskin, Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, Stone Soup, Sun, Moon, & Talia, Twelve Dancing Princesses, The Ugly Duckling, The Velvet Ribbon
