Faie Fables: Tales for Women
Authored by Cherie Renae
Illustrated by Cher Odum
What ‘truths’ are women told about who they are and how they should behave? What tales do they tell themselves?
Author Cherie Renae writes:
“We’re told we’re too stupid, too smart, too thin, too fat. We hear that our feet are too big, our bust is too small, our dreams are too large, our hips are too wide. Worst of all, we’ve told ourselves these lies. With these tales, I invite us to shout down our self-denigrating cries. Here is the truth: women are fabulous at every age and size.”
Faie Fables is a series of one-page fables, beautifully illustrated by female-empowering artist, Cher Odum. It challenges women to re-envision their lives and their dreams. These lyrical, engaging stories are accompanied by Postnotes (with questions) to further engage the reader, and the colorful images are a feast for the eyes.

While definitely geared toward the female reader, this book has a universal undercurrent that has something to offer just about anyone who reads it. For women, it’s an undeniable bit of inspiration, the characters persevering in the face of sometimes life-long trials. The message seems to be, “No matter what has gone before, life is ahead and you’ll make it. You got this.” This book being what it is, I don’t suspect there will be many male readers, but for them, it offers a rare insight into the “inner workings” of the feminine mind, a glimpse of the Feminine Divine, and, if one looks close enough, a means to empowering the woman/women in their own lives. – Dave Calhoun
