Reviews

Praise for "Princess Tales: "

"These are paintings to pore over: depictions of familiar fairy tales in sometimes unusual settings that are each filled with tiny seek-and-find details meant to entrance 3- to 8-year-olds. The accompanying text by Grace Maccarone rattles along in droll rhyme that is a pleasure to read aloud (though in print so small that adults may do some poring themselves)." --"The Wall Street Journal"

..".a splendid reimagining of favorite stories." --"Publishers Weekly," starred review

"This inventive book pairs 10 familiar stories retold in verse with seek-and-find illustrations. ...The fun lies in the art. In some selections, the tale has a new locale. 'The Princess and the Frog' has a Chinese setting complete with pagoda, dragon kite, and pandas, while 'The Princess and the Pea' takes place in an ornate African court." --"School Library Journal"

""

"""Inventive and engaging." --Booklist

..".a classic collection that can be recommended for public library and home collections." --"Children's Literature"
