9780060518417: The Princess Tales, Volume I (Princess Tales (HarperTrophy))

Once upon a time...

A kind sister and a cruel one. A charming prince. A spiteful fairy. A hundred-year snooze. A pea under a pile of mattresses. A kiss.

All the familiar ingredients, but why is the punished sister happy? Where did that extra prince come from, and what does a flock of balding sheep or a fleck of tuna in a chocolate cake have to do with anything?

Gail Carson Levine has waved her magic wand over three well-known fairy tales, and presto! They are transformed -- and sparklingly funny-in these delightful retellings:

The Fairy's Mistake
The Princess Test
Princess Sonora and the Long Sleep

Happily ever after has never been so hilarious!

About the Author:

Gail Carson Levine's first book for children, Ella Enchanted, was a Newbery Honor Book. Levine's other books include Ever, a New York Times bestseller; Fairest, a Best Book of the Year for Publishers Weekly and School Library Journal, and a New York Times bestseller; Dave at Night, an ALA Notable Book and Best Book for Young Adults; The Wish; The Two Princesses of Bamarre; A Tale of Two Castles; and the six Princess Tales books. She is also the author of the nonfiction books Writing Magic: Creating Stories That Fly and Writer to Writer: From Think to Ink, as well as the picture books Betsy Who Cried Wolf and Betsy Red Hoodie. Gail Carson Levine and her husband, David, live in a two-centuries-old farmhouse in the Hudson Valley of New York State.



Mark Elliott is the illustrator of many picture books and novels for young readers, including Gail Carson Levine's ever-popular Princess Tales series. He lives in New York State's Hudson River Valley.

From AudioFile:

In these popular stories, Levine transforms familiar standbys (like "Cinderella" and "Sleeping Beauty") into longer, more thought-provoking tales that pose interesting questions. Is being too good boring? How much dust accumulates on the face of a princess sleeping for 100 years? What does turning into a toad actually FEEL like? Lili Taylor reads these six stories earnestly, leaving their humor to be discovered by listeners. Her pleasant, slightly husky voice distinguishes kings and queens, dairymaids and princes, easily transporting listeners to long-ago, faraway settings. Taylor piques children's curiosity while satisfying them with the security of happy endings. J.C.G. © AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
