The Twelve Dancing Princesses

(Häftad)
Beskrivning:

A beautiful retelling of the classic Brothers Grimm tale with lavish oil paintings Long ago, in the days of princesses, castles, and magic spells, there lived a king and his twelve daughters. Although the king locked the twelve princesses in their bedroom each night, every morning their twelve pairs of dancing shoes were found to be worn quite through, as if they had been danced in all night long! The king proclaimed that anyone who discovered the secret of the worn-out shoes could marry the princess of his choice. Here is the enchanting story of how the mystery was finally solved - Ruth Sanderson is the highly acclaimed illustrator of over seventy five books for children. Her fairy tale retellings include Cinderella, Goldilocks, The Snow Princess, and Rose Red and Snow White. Her original fairy tale, The Enchanted Wood, won both the Young Hoosier Award and the Bank Street College Award. The Texas Bluebonnet Award was given to her retelling of The Golden Mare, the Firebird, and the Magic Ring. Ruth lives with her husband in Easthampton, Massachusetts. "Sanderson's retelling of this classic tale from the Brothers Grimm is enthralling, and the muted elegance of her oil paintings captures the romance and magic of this well-known fairy tale." - Language Arts "With their rich, muted colors and intricate detail, the illustrations capture the story's magic and romance, while recreating the lavish dress and customs of the 15th century - Sanderson's art recalls Italian paintings of the era she depicts - " - Publishers Weekly
