Unhappily Ever After – A Fairy Story for Grownups

by Lucinda E Clarke

The true history of Fairyland after that famous ball. Two hundred years later Cinderella is fed up with King Charming and wants a divorce. Snow White remembers her gentile upbringing and refuses the attentions of her husband King Harold and refuses to go where every woman has gone before. Sleeping Beauty is making up for lost time producing 28 children. It is almost time for the Grand Annual Ball, where princesses and princes will meet, marry and mate – but there are precious few princes on offer. Into the mix the Green Giant arrives, sent by the RED party to rouse the happy, stupid peasants into revolting against their royal masters. This is not the story you were told as a child.
