First, read the poems forward (how old-fashioned!), then reverse the lines and read again to give familiar tales, from Sleeping Beauty to that Charming Prince, a delicious new spin. Witty, irreverent, and warm, this gorgeously illustrated and utterly unique offering holds a mirror up to language and fairy tales, and renews the fun and magic of both.
But then Tallulah gets an unexpected surprise . . . and not the good kind. What’s a ballerina to do when everything does not go as planned?
Ballet and sibling rivalry meet head-on in this fabulous follow-up to Tallulah’s Tutu.
A Margaret Ferguson Book
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.
And another spun straw into gold, in ten tales told anew!
Ten of the most beloved princess stories are ingeniously retold and splendidly illustrated—with cleverly hidden pictures—by author Grace Maccarone and artist Gail de Marken. From Cinderella to Sleeping Beauty, The Princess and the Pea to Snow White, these favorite tales will delight readers, happily ever after.
