The Twelve Dancing Princesses by Brigette Barrager


The Twelve Dancing Princesses by Brigette Barrager

A beautiful, modernized version of the Grimms fairy tale 'The Twelve Dancing Princesses.' In this story, twelve princesses find that their shoes are worn out every morning-and they are totally exhausted! A handsome suitor discovers that they are enchanted, and each night, in their sleep, they are going to a magical world to dance in a ball. By helping to break the spell, he earns the love of the youngest princess. The story ends with a beautiful wedding ball.


Barrager brings a fittingly soigne aesthetic to this retelling - Publishers Weekly
