The Barefoot Book of Princesses

Talking birds, magic red beans and, of course, resourceful heroines, tumbling out from a jaunty, fantastical compendium. - Smithsonian Magazine

This warm and humorous collection presents much-loved favorites such as "The Princess and the Pea" from Denmark and less familiar figures including "The Mountain Princess" from Persia and "The Horned Snake's Wife" from the Iroquois of North America. Caitlin Matthews's wonderfully dramatic retellings are perfect for reading aloud, while Olwyn Whelan's bright and witty illustrations are a feast in themselves.
