Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the grand tradition of fairy tales, clever and beautiful Katarina must solve the kings riddle in order to become queen, or risk her dear father going to prison. She must get to the castle — not clothed, yet not naked; not riding, yet not walking; not on the road, yet not off the road. Will kindhearted Katarina be able to solve the riddle and save her father from his fate?

Renowned storyteller Ken Setterington has borrowed from European folk traditions to tell an enchanting story of a young girl — intelligent, observant, and pure of heart — whose sensitivity and acumen saves the day.

Nelly and Ernst Hofers delicate cut-paper art of scherenschnitt makes this storybook an exquisite addition to any collection.
