Win two fairy tale books given a modern makeover for a new generation

What if princesses didn't always marry Prince Charming and live happily ever after? What if heroes were celebrated for their hearts and not their swords? Enter this competition to read Vita Murrow's brilliant fairy tales entertainingly re-imagined.



High Five to the Hero and Power to the Princess by Vita Murrow (Frances Lincoln) are just the sort of fairy tale collections you'll love to read with your child: full of positive life lessons and diverse leads.

Focused on issues including self-image, confidence, LGBTQ+ rights, friendship, advocacy and disability, these stories are perfect for sharing between parents and children, or for older ones to read by themselves.
