The CD is out of print right now - I have it and I love it so much but I she’s re-printing a different one … soonish? Mmmmm I get it but I’m not sure about the implication that real life is an inherent punishment for girls and I find this kind of feminist take a little reactionary and keen to flatten out female characters and their stories into simple terms to make a kind of Yass Queen point Anyway here’s a video I love examining the differences in feminist-related theming between the book and movie of The Wizard of Oz httpswwwyoutubecomwatch?v=hz15yFVF1TI And here’s a Hark! A Vagrant comic that is very much that’s-it-that’s the-book re Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland Meme
