Few little girls can resist a princess. The renowned illustrator, Peter Malone, has created an extraordinary, richly detailed treasury with eight of the most beloved heroines in classic fairy tales. And what heroines they are! Spirited and strong-willed, they hold great appeal for the contemporary audience, and are memorably rendered in Malone’s distinctive style. He places the stories--The Princess and the Pea, Rapunzel, The Sleeping Beauty, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast, The Twelve Dancing Princesses, and The Frog Prince--in specific eras and locales rather than stereotypical fantasy settings.
