Additional Information

Master storyteller Robin McKinley here spins two new fairy tales and retells two cherished classics. All feature princesses touched with or by magic. There is Linadel, who lives in a kingdom next to Faerieland, where princesses are stolen away on their seventeenth birthdays-and Linadel's seventeenth birthday is tomorrow. And Korah, whose brother is bewitched by the magical Golden Hind; now it is up to her to break the spell. Rana must turn to a talking frog to help save her kingdom from the evil Aliyander. And then there are the twelve princesses, enspelled to dance through the soles of their shoes every night. . . . These are tales to read with delight!

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Enthralling collection of stories! I have always been a fan of Robin McKinley, having read and enjoyed both Beauty and Spindle's End. Her recreation of these fairy tales, particularly The Frog Prince, are engaging and wonderful to read. Her development of characters, and intricate plot make this book one that's very hard to put down. On the whole, a fantastic collection of stories to read again and again.
Robin McKinley uses words the way Leonardo da Vinci used paint. She paints multi-layered tales of surpassing beauty and wonder that deserve to be savored and read over and over. These stories are familiar to our memory, yet made new by her interpretations. The princess stolen by fairies, the frog prince, the tale of the mysterious golden deer, and the twelve dancing princesses, all are enchanted anew under McKinley's masterful hand. I love this book!
The stories in this book are sweet and wonderful. I've been enjoying Robin McKinley's books and this one is no exception. A true masterpiece of lovely, complex short stories.
