The Fairy-Tale Princess
The breathtaking images for these fairy tales were created from the pages of old books--paper sculptures of characters and their surroundings! All of the sculptures have text on them, however it is not usually clear that the text is related to the scene. Occasionally, however, the words on the sculpture will perfectly match the story, for example in Sleeping Beauty, on the sculpture of the spinning wheel is the text "ever touch a spinning-whe". The seven stories included in this collection are Cinderella, The Frog Prince, The Twelve Dancing Princesses, The Princess and the Pea, Snow White, Rapunzel, and Sleeping Beauty. Snow White and Rapunzel do not shy away from the gruesome roots of their story. These stories are best shared one on one where the images can be closely scrutinized and enjoyed.
