Reviews

"Leduc persuasively illustrates the power of stories to affect reality in this painstakingly researched and provocative study that invites us to consider our favorite folktales from another angle." - Library Journal


"Historically we have associated the disabled body image and disabled life with an unhappy ending" - Toronto Star


"She [Leduc] argues that template is how society continues to treat the disabled: rather than making the world accessible for everyone, the disabled are often asked to adapt to inaccessible environments." - Quill & Quire
