Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A fine adventure tale full of danger, suspense, surprising twists, and a satisfying conclusion…This also a book about courage and justice in the face of overwhelming odds.” Booklist
“Get ready for a fine adventure tale full of danger, suspense, surprising twists, and a satisfying conclusion. The engaging plot can certainly carry the tale, but Hale's likable, introspective heroine makes this also a book about courage and justice in the face of overwhelming odds.” Booklist
“A full-cast production voiced by over four dozen actors brings this well-known Grimms fairy tale to life, albeit it with a modern and magical twist—This tale of courage and perseverance is a listening delight.” School Library Journal
“More magic, drama, and a far stronger princess than the original…A beautiful coming of age tale, filled with magic and self-discovery. Ms. Hale manages to take a brief, fairly well-known fable and weaves an impressive, lush story that is completely irresistible.” TheBookSmugglers.com
