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

Review:

'Beautifully told and presented.' --The Sunday Times

'A sudden spate of books about princesses, but this is one of the best of them. The unusual and ethnic illustrations beautifully reflect the text which shows in stories from around the world how the lives of princesses are not always charmed and that they too may not easily find happiness.' --Kids Out

'Full of swashbuckling adventures and fantastic tales.' --The Guardian
