About the Author:

Tanya Robyn Batt is one of the world's few professional faeries. Using her vast costume wardrobe, Tanya travels all over the world performing at festivals, schools and libraries.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 1-4 - An original tale combining elements from several Norwegian folktales including "The White Bear King," "East of the Sun, West of the Moon," and "The Black Bull of Norraway." A princess dreams of a beautiful golden crown and eventually encounters a bear in the frozen forest that possesses it. She passes a test and returns with him to an exquisite castle. Every night he enters her chamber quietly and sleeps on the floor next to her bed. The Princess's mother convinces her to look at him even though the bear had warned, "Do not listen to your mother's advice, for if you do, bad luck will befall us both." Indeed, the bear/prince now tells her that he must flee to the terrible Troll Queen and marry her. What follows is the Princess's long journey to be reunited with him. She meets three women along the way who give her items that help her outwit the Troll Queen. The deeply saturated acrylic illustrations magnify the adventure, offering varied perspectives and highlighting the magic of the northern landscape. This story begs to be told aloud and is a fresh addition to most library shelves. - Linda M. Kenton, San Rafael Public Library, CA
