Once upon a time. . .    

A princess danced, a princess dreamed, another found a pea.
One kissed a frog, one saved a bird, another crossed the sea.
One ate an apple, one tamed a beast, one lost a satin shoe.
And another spun straw into gold, in ten tales told anew!

Ten of the most beloved princess stories are ingeniously retold and splendidly illustrated—with cleverly hidden pictures—by author Grace Maccarone and artist Gail de Marken. From Cinderella to Sleeping Beauty, The Princess and the Pea to Snow White, these favorite tales will delight readers, happily ever after.

Praise for Princess Tales

"These are paintings to pore over: depictions of familiar fairy tales in sometimes unusual settings that are each filled with tiny seek-and-find details meant to entrance 3- to 8-year-olds. The accompanying text by Grace Maccarone rattles along in droll rhyme that is a pleasure to read aloud (though in print so small that adults may do some poring themselves)."--The Wall Street Journal
 
"...a splendid reimagining of favorite stories."--Publishers Weekly, starred review
 
"The fun lives in the art." -- School Library Journal
