Tatsinda is considered an outsider by the people of the Tatrajanni kingdom. Her talent as a weaver has ensured that she can support herself--and perhaps win the love of the handsome Prince. But when an evil giant takes Tatsinda prisoner and plans to destroy the kingdom, it will take all the magic, skill, and love that Tatsinda and the Prince can muster to foil the giant and restore peace and beauty to the mountain. “This timeless story will make an absorbing read-aloud.”--School Library Journal

Kindergarten-Grade 4-- On a far away mountaintop in a peaceful kingdom there lives a beautiful golden-haired, brown-eyed girl, Tatsinda. Because she does not have the white hair and blue eyes of all the other inhabitants of Tatrajan, they feel sorry for her, even though she is an excellent weaver and makes a good living. They all live in harmony until a greedy troll-like ogre from a tribe beyond the mountain invades the tiny kingdom and carries Tatsinda off. It takes the special magic of the wise woman of the mountain, the prince's determination, and the girl's own skill and courage to save her and the kingdom from destruction. Originally published in 1963, this new edition has 19 stylized full-page, full-color illustrations in watercolor and ink, finely detailed with ornate borders. This timeless story will make an absorbing read-aloud. --Sally R. Dow, Ossining Public Library, NY
