Publisher's Summary

This wickedly wise (and wisecracking) parody of classic fairy tales redefines happily ever after for the modern feminist era.

You know what? It's super creepy to kiss a woman who is unconscious. And you know what else? The way out of poverty isn't by marrying a rich dude - or by wearing fragile footwear, for that matter. And while we're at it, why is the only woman who lives with seven men expected to do the cooking, cleaning, and laundry?

Fairytales need a reboot, and comedy queens Laura Lane and Ellen Haun are the women to do it. In Cinderella and the Glass Ceiling, they offer a rollicking parody of classic (read: patriarchal) tales that turns sweet, submissive princesses into women who are perfectly capable of being the heroes of their own stories. Mulan climbs the ranks in the army but wages a different war when she finds out she's getting paid less than her fellow male captains, Wendy learns never to trust a man-boy stalking her window, Sleeping Beauty's prince gets a lesson in consent, and more.

Busting with laugh-out-loud, razor-sharp twists to these outdated tales, Cinderella and the Glass Ceiling is fun, magical, necessary, and totally woke.

Critic Reviews

"The Brothers Grimm have nothing on Laura Lane and Ellen Haun. From a woke Sleeping Beauty to a Red Riding Hood fighting wolf-calls, here's a book of fairy tales not for your children but for your hilarious girlfriends. It's perfect reading for every feminist who longs for a happy ending." (Jennifer Wright, author of It Ended Badly)

"Why did we let dudes write stories about women for so long? They put us in towers, made us clean houses, and made us very sleepy! Ellen and Laura are finally making it right!" (Lauren Adams, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt)

"A witty and much-needed fairy tale reboot. Makes you think about what we've been teaching our children!" (Jo Firestone, comedian)
