Every morning the shoes of the king's twelve daughters are worn out, as if they had been danced in all night. Perplexed, the king offers any one of the princesses in marriage, and eventual rule of his kingdom, to the prince who can solve this mystery. No one is able to help him...until an old soldier with a magic cloak takes up the challenge. The Twelve Dancing Princesses written by the Brothers Grimm in the early 1800s, has been retold here with a fresh voice and an original sense of humor by fine-artist Gordon Fitchett. The delightful pictures beg to be looked at again and again.
