Book Review - The Twelve Dancing Princesses
About the Book
The king has a problem. His twelve daughters wake up every morning with their slippers in rags and tatters. Where are they going? The palace is guarded to the hilt, and the shoemakers are exhausted. The king has promised his kingdom to anyone who can solve the mystery in three days and three nights. Prince after prince fails, then a disheveled soldier arrives at the palace door. Will he succeed? Miss Clara's dazzling artwork takes the twelve princesses shimmering and waltzing across the pages of this classic fairy tale.
My Take on the Book
I have seen this fairy tale before, but the book itself was just breathtakingly beautiful. The story was shared in a fun and engaging way, but for me it was the illustrations that took the book to the next level! The author combines her prose with these images to truly bring the characters to life and to draw you even further into the story itself. This is definitely a story that any little princess will simply adore!
