The Barefoot Book of Princesses with Audio CD
Best Seller
The Barefoot Book of Princesses retold by Caitlin Matthews, illustrated by Olwyn Whelan

This warm and humorous collection presents much-loved favorites such as "The Princess and the Pea" from Denmark and less familiar figures including "The Beggar Princess" from China and "The Horned Snake’s Wife" from the Iroquois of North America. Caitlin Matthews’s wonderfully dramatic retellings are perfect for reading aloud, while Olwyn Whelan’s bright and witty illustrations are a feast in themselves.

Stories included are:
  • The Princess and the Pea (Danish)
  • The Mountain Princess (Persian)
  • The Princess who Lost Her Hair (Akamba)
  • The Birdcage Husband (Kalmuck)
  • The Beggar Princess (Chinese)
  • The Horned Snake's Wife (Iroquois)
  • The Sleeping Beauty (German)

"Talking birds, magic red beans and, of course, resourceful heroines, tumbling out from a jaunty, fantastical compendium that reflects sources as various as Scandinavia, China and Persia." — Smithsonian Magazine

"Matthews come[s] up with treasure.... Whelan’s effervescent artwork recalls Jane Ray’s in composition, color and use of detail and borders. She tailors her delicate watercolors to each story’s country of origin." — Publishers Weekly (starred review)
