Synopsis

Step into a Once Upon a Time where anything is possible . . . Radiya Hafiza's enchanting and funny debut weaves together three stories, spinning the classic fairytale to show that anyone can be a hero.



'Rumaysa, Rumaysa, let down your hijab!'



For as long as she can remember Rumaysa has been locked away in her tower, forced to spin straw into gold for the evil Witch, unable to leave. Until one day, after dropping a hijab out of her small tower-window, Rumaysa realizes how she might be able to escape . . .



Join Rumaysa as she adventures through enchanted forests and into dragon's lairs, discovers her own incredible magical powers and teams up with Cinderayla and Sleeping Sara!



Rumaysa: A Fairytale is a magically fresh, empowering and funny debut, which retells three classic fairytales - Rapunzel, Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty - with beautiful inside illustrations by Rhaida El Touny and cover illustration by Areeba Siddique. Discover more of Rumaysa's adventures in the enchanting sequel Rumaysa: Ever After.

Radiya Hafiza studied English Language and Literature at King's College London and worked in publishing for a few years. Radiya grew up reading classic fairy tales that never had any brown girls in them - Rumaysa is her debut novel, bringing such stories to children who need to see themselves represented. Rhaida El Touny is a self-taught illustrator and digital content creator based in The Netherlands. Her work is characterised by bright, pastel colours and much of her art explores important topics around diversity, racism and Islamic culture. Areeba Siddique is a freelance illustrator and art student living in Karachi. She loves all things about drawing and reading, and visits bookshops at every available opportunity.
