About this title


SWEEPING BEAUTIES whisks us away on more exuberant adventures to a strangely familiar land which turns the traditional fairy story right on its head and golden curls. The Sisters Grimmturn the tables on 'she and him'; Patri, eldest son of the Arkys, gets his comeuppance and the Fairy Godmother gets a salary! Elaine Crowley, Margaretta D'Arcy, Rita Kelly, Maeve Kelly, Anne Hartigan and other well-known writers will delight and charm you with the magic of their clever, funny, irreverent reinventions. Fairyland will never be the same again. Cover Design: Barbara Nolan.
SWEEPING BEAUTIES is the fourth in Attic's highly successful series of Fairytales for Feminists. The previous collections, Rapunzel's Revenge, Ms Muffet and Others and Mad and Bad Fairies, were enthusiastically acclaimed by the critics for their originality, wit and verve.
