The Fairy-Tale Princess: Seven Classic Stories from the Enchanted Forest Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is a beautiful collection of seven fairy tales--Sleeping Beauty,The Frog Prince, Rapunzel, Cinderella, Snow White, The Princess and the Pea, and The Twelve Dancing Princesses--organized around the theme of the fairytale princess and retold in a fresh and lyrical voice by Wendy Jones. They are illustrated with glorious papercut sculptures specially created by Su Blackwell. The characters--and the kingdoms they inhabit--emerge from the pages through a series of exquisite paper sculptures. Each tale has a unique visual flavor: while Sleeping Beauty is blue and dreamy, The Princess and the Pea is green and summery. The magic and otherworldliness of traditional fairytale collections meet glorious, contemporary paper constructions in The Fairtytale Princess, which makes a charming addition to the shelf of bedtime stories.

Review:

"Blackwell's scene-stealing three-dimensional paper sculptures, crafted from vintage book pages, are the centerpiece of this album of seven condensed fairy tales, retold by Jones in simple yet evocative language. Cinderella's coach is led by six white paper horses, and her fairy godmother's poufy skirts glow like a paper lantern. The opening scene in 'The Frog Prince' unfolds on the pages of an open book, trees, mushrooms, and a well springing up from its pages. In addition to lending texture and pattern, the text used in Blackwell's artwork connects to the stories in clever ways: the words 'never touch a spinning-wheel' appear ominously on the side of one such wheel as the princess reaches for it in 'Sleeping Beauty.' All ages. (Oct.)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
