The Folktales Series
by Robin McKinley (Author)
In another far-off land, a beloved baby is born to a King and Queen and their kingdom rejoices. But the festivities attract the attention of an unwelcome guest – a wicked fairy named Pernicia – who curses the child on her naming day. Young Briar-Rose's family and friends must sacrifice everything in order to protect the child they adore . . .
This series of spellbinding retellings of classical fairy tales is embroidered with beauty, elegance and grace. Stories featured include The Princess and the Frog, Sleeping Beauty, 12 Dancing Princesses and two unique reimaginings of Beauty and the Beast.
