Evan, who had been blasted off of a sinking gay cruise ship, seems to embody everything young Rip has ever longed for. Because of this, he trades his voice to a wicked drag queen sea witch for legs. Yet, unbeknownst to Rip, this dark being has an agenda of his own... Can Rip find true love within the sweltering summer heat of Miami? Or will he turn to sea foam...and perish? *Includes art and illustrations.

The fairy tale may be one of the most important cultural and social influences on children's lives. But until Fairy Tales and the Art of Subversion, little attention had been paid to the ways in which the writers and collectors of tales used traditional forms and genres in order to shape children's lives – their behavior, values, and relationship to society. As Jack Zipes convincingly shows, fairy tales have always been a powerful discourse, capable of being used to shape or destabilize attitudes and behavior within culture. For this new edition, the author has revised the work throughout and added a new introduction bringing this classic title up to date.
