How to cook a princess


Gingrich the Witch takes her cooking very seriously, from the perfect utensils – cages and cauldrons – to the perfect recipes- a Sleeping Beauty omelette or a Cinderella hamburger… Follow along as she prepares her favourite “legendary” meals.


Delicious (of course!), original and recipe book-like illustrated album, with a demolishing approach: the author is supposed to be a wicked witch who gives recipes to learn how to cook princesses. Truly, princesses deserve to be cooked because they are a pain in the neck: only a moron decides to kiss a toad believing the animal will turn into a prince; just a real twerp will eat something offered by a stranger. Readers will support this funny witch instead, rejecting traditional princesses and they will think about those passive, stupid female figures with nothing to be proud of. By means of strategies resembling gore movies and super-detailed illustrations, this album leads children to rethink the role of traditional princesses so as to forget them forever.
