Where do the king's beautiful daughter disappear to night after night? And who can solve the mystery of the twelve pairs of dancing slippers, worn to shreds by the morning? Internationally acclained illustrator Jane Ray brings to vivid life the fun-loving princesses of the classic Grimm fairy tale, as they boldly escape the confines of their father's castle. Each one is a character in her own right--a loving sister & a not-so-dutiful daughter--enjoying their moments of freedom as well as their beautiful brocade ballgowns. With its sumptuous detailed illustrations & gold & silver highlights, The Twelve Dancing Princesses is the latest jewel in the crown of Jane Ray's retellings of classic stories, which are themselves rapidly becoming modern classics.Grimm, Jacob W. is the author of 'The Twelve Dancing Princesses - Brothers Grimm - Paperback' with ISBN 9780893751173 and ISBN 0893751170.
