Different is Powerful

Ever wonder why there are so few female fairy tale heroes? So did we. It’s time to make herstory!

Perfectly Awkward Tales is a series of girl-powered adventures where self-acceptance is the hero.

The stories we read matter. They influence who we become. Perfectly Awkward Tales inspire kids to grow strong & believe in themselves, no matter how awkward that might feel.

It takes guts to be different. What hero is normal? Not a single one!
