The Sister Who Ate Her Brothers: And Other Gruesome Tales

Jen Campbell, Adam de Souza

Jen Campbell’s collection of terrifyingly gruesome tales lends a modern edge to fairy tale collections for young readers.

Drawing on her extensive knowledge of fairy tale history, Campbell’s stories undo the censoring, gender stereotyping and twee endings of more modern children’s fairy tales, to return both classic and little-known stories to their grim versions, whilst celebrating a diverse range of characters.     

Featuring 14 short stories from around the globe, The Sister Who Ate Her Brothers is illustrated in a contemporary style by Canadian comic artist Adam de Souza. De Souza’s brooding illustrations are a highly original blend of 19th-century Gothic engravings and moody film noir graphic novels. Beautifully produced in a hardback format with a rose gold ribbon marker, and including 86 illustrations, 30 in colour, The Sister Who Ate Her Brothers is a truly thrilling gift.
