Master storyteller Robin McKinley here spins two new fairy tales and retells two cherished classics. All feature princesses touched with or by magic.

We meet Linadel, who lives in a kingdom next to Faerieland, where princesses are stolen away on their seventeenth birthdays—and Linadel's seventeenth birthday is tomorrow. And Korah, whose brother is bewitched by the magical Golden Hind; now it is up to her to break the spell. Rana must turn to a talking frog to help save her kingdom from the evil Aliyander. And then there are the twelve princesses, enchanted to dance through the soles of their shoes every night. . . These are tales to read with delight!
