“The Wild Swans,” “The Sleeping Beauty,” “The Princess and the Pea,” “Snow White,” “The Twelve Dancing Princesses,” and “The Frog Prince” comprise this collection of olden times, evil stepmothers, magic rings, and little girl dreams. Amy Ehrlich’s clear prose keeps the edges sharp on these stories of courage and abandonment, sleep and death, while Gary Blythe’s illustrations shimmer with the delights of the impossible. Each story begins with a small, but very lovely pop-up of a memorable scene. Recommended for princesses aged seven and up.
