Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

K-Gr 4—There is so much more than happy endings when it comes to fairy tales. Rapunzel's prince loses his eyesight when trying to rescue her. The little mermaid never marries the prince; instead, with a broken heart, she goes back to the sea after her sisters relinquish their hair to the sea witch. Furthermore, Scheherazade employs her ingenuity to save her life over and over again, and Princess Moonlight understands that she must leave her parents and home to embrace her destiny. Maccarone adapts nine classic tales. Her rhyming text is eloquently shaped, flowing naturally and surrounding readers with rich vocabulary. Moreover, the adapter retrieves characters from classical literature and her own imagination to create a powerful fairy-tale rendition. Elementary school children will be fascinated by the dense texture of the expressionist illustrations, where emotions are emphasized through contrasting colors, taking the prose beyond words. The book has an interactive seek-and-find element, which teachers can use to animate a class unit on fairy tales with a projector. However, the small font makes this title better suited for a private storytime at home than a setting with a larger audience. VERDICT An artistic and poetic approach to fairy tales that public and school libraries will appreciate.—Kathia Ibacache, Simi Valley Public Library, CA

Review

"Fantastical illustrations combine with beautifully rhymed poetry in this collection of princess stories from all over the world.... Fun and colorful illustrations cover most of the pages, accompanied by the decoratively framed text. The clever and witty rhymes will be fun for children to read aloud, whether alone or with others." ― Booklist

"An artistic and poetic approach to fairy tales" ―School Library Journal

Princess Tales:

“These are paintings to pore over: depictions of familiar fairy tales in sometimes unusual settings that are each filled with tiny seek-and-find details meant to entrance 3- to 8-year-olds. The accompanying text by Grace Maccarone rattles along in droll rhyme that is a pleasure to read aloud (though in print so small that adults may do some poring themselves).” ―The Wall Street Journal

“...a splendid reimagining of favorite stories.” ―Publishers Weekly, starred review

“The fun lives in the art.” ―School Library Journal
