The Twelve Dancing Princesses by Brigette Barrager
I know that I'm always gushing about some book or another, but this might be my favorite book right now.
I discovered it at the IRA convention a few weeks ago by chance. I happened to notice the title and thought, 'Hey, we don't have a copy of the Twelve Dancing Princesses" yet. We NEED one.
I had one version as a child, but can't remember which one. But I do remember reading it over and over again. The images are stuck in my head, but of course, I can't remember the illustrator.
However, at this point it doesn't really matter because I have fallen head-over-heels in love with this new version. (just released in may!)
You know the story already, so I won't go into a recap, but just feast your eyes on these illustrations!
I can't wait to see what she does next.
I did find this lovely Princess Matching Game that I put on my Christmas gift idea list for the girls.
And these 12 Paper Doll Notecards might be a good present for me. :)
