"Haunting, mysterious paintings by Catherine Hyde form the highly unusual illustrations for Carol Ann Duffy’s new fairy tale." — INSIDE CORNWALL MAGAZINE

A young princess who can never feel warm. A worried king and queen. A stranger in black with hard gray eyes. A musician with a kind and good heart. Carol Ann Duffy’s powerful new fairy tale explores the depths of human fears, frailty, and love, complemented by a series of beautiful, atmospheric paintings by acclaimed artist Catherine Hyde. Compelling, lyrical, magical — this is the tale of THE PRINCESS'S BLANKETS.
