Synopsis

Princess Tales by Grace Maccarone

Once Upon A Time: A princess danced, a princess dreamed, another found a pea. One kissed a frog, one saved a bird, another crossed the sea. One ate an apple, one tamed a beast, one lost a satin shoe. Another spun straw into gold, in ten tales stories told anew! Ten of the most beloved princess stories are ingeniously retold by author Grace Maccarone and splendidly illustrated with cleverly hidden pictures by artist Gail de Marcken. From Cinderella to Sleeping Beauty, The Princess and the Pea to Snow White, these favourite tales will delight readers happily ever after.

Reviews

These are paintings to pore over: depictions of familiar fairy tales in sometimes unusual settings that are each filled with tiny seek-and-find details meant to entrance 3- to 8-year-olds. The accompanying text by Grace Maccarone rattles along in droll rhyme that is a pleasure to read aloud (though in print so small that adults may do some poring themselves). The Wall Street Journal A splendid reimagining of favorite stories. Publishers Weekly, starred review This inventive book pairs 10 familiar stories retold in verse with seek-and-find illustrations. The fun lies in the art. In some selections, the tale has a new locale. 'The Princess and the Frog
