Review:

For those of you who can't get enough of beautiful princesses, magic spells, and brave deeds, this lavish, multicultural collection will knock your glass slippers off! Shirley Climo is well known for her retellings of folktales and Cinderella stories from different cultures, such as The Korean Cinderella. In this lovely treasury she spins tales of princesses from China, Russia, South Africa, Germany, Guatemala, and Greece, as well as one story from The Arabian Nights. Each story is enhanced with a lush painting by the noted illustrator Ruth Sanderson and an introduction summarizing other related fairy tales and the origins of the story. The princesses and their tales are all different, but they all have one thing in common: they all live happily ever after, of course! (Ages 6 to 10)

About the Author:

Shirley Climo's love of folklore began in her childhood and has provided the background for many of her children's books, such as The Korean Cinderella, Magic & Mischief: Tales from Cornwall, A Treasury of Princesses: Princess Tales from Around the World, A Treasury of Mermaids: Mermaid Tales from Around the World, and Someone Saw a Spider: Spider Facts and Folktales, an NCTE Teacher's Choice and Library of Congress Best Children's Book that was originally inspired by her research for Cobweb Christmas. Mrs. Climo and her husband live in Los Altos, California.



Author of many books for children, Shirley Climo has explored international variations of the Cinderella myth in her popular and carefully researched books The Irish Cinderlad, illustrated by Loretta Krupinski, The Korean Cinderella, and The Egyptian Cinderella, both illustrated by Ruth Heller. Ms. Climo lives in Los Altos, CA.

Ruth Sanderson is the author and illustrator of such beautiful children's books as The Twelve Dancing Princesses, The Enchanted Wood, and Papa Gatto. She lives in Ware, MA.
