What is included with this book?
ONCE UPON A TIME…
A princess laughed, A princess sang, Another made a trade.
One told stories, One was kind, Another refused to wed.
One cast spells, One was cursed, Another silently sewed every day.
And one tossed golden apples away in ten fairy tales retold.
In Princess Tales Around the World ten beloved princess stories, ingeniously told and gorgeously illustrated—with hidden pictures for readers to find—by author Grace Maccarone and artist Gail de Marcken, will delight readers, happily ever after.
Tales include: Rapunzel, The Golden Goose, The Little Mermaid, The Firebird, Scheherazade, Princess Moonlight, The Princess on the Glass Hill, The Loathsome Dragon, Toads and Diamonds, and Six Swans, with Source Notes from the author.
