A nice collection of stories,
This review is from: The Fairytale Princess: Seven Classic Stories from the Enchanted Forest (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The Fairytale Princess by Su Blackwell contains seven stories. These are Cinderella, The Frog Prince, The Twelve Dancing Princesses, The Princess And The Pea, Snow White, Rapunzel and Sleeping Beauty. The stories are well written and have kept my daughter entertained. Su Blackwell's paper sculpture illustrations are excellent and offer an imaganative alternative to the usual style of illustration in childrens books.
I must admit I was expecting pop up illustration going by the discription, but the mistake is not the authors fault but rather down to Amazon, who I hope will rectify it. The book is a large A4 (ish) sized hard back and is quite heavy so younger children would possibly have difficulty holding it. Saying that one of the most enjoyable parts of parenthood for me is reading to my daughter. So all in all a very enjoyable book with some fantastic illustrations. Thank you for reading my review.
