The Lovereading4Kids comment

A wonderful gift for virtually every young girl for they delight in the world of princesses and wish more than anything they were one.

This collection of stories, from The Princess and the Pea to The Sleeping Beauty and many in between, brings the world of princesses alive in such a way that children will believe they are actually there as they read them or have them read to them. Illustations to die for and to cap it all there’s an unabridged CD of all the stories packaged with the book.


Barefoot Book Of Princesses by Caitlin Matthews

This collection includes much-loved favourites such as 'The Princess and the Pea' from Denmark, and less familiar figures, among them 'The Beggar Princess from China' and 'The Horned Snake's Wife' from the Iroquoix of North America.
