About this title


Journeying to the kingdom of her betrothed, a golden-haired princess is betrayed by a wicked serving girl who forces her to change clothes and horses, condemning the princess to herd geese in the meadow.

From Booklist:

Gr. 4^-6. In this picture-book retelling for older readers, a young princess, naive in the ways of the world, is sent to marry the prince of a distant kingdom. After losing the protective charm her mother gave her, she falls prey to the greedy ambition of her serving maid, who steals her clothes, usurps her place, and kills her talking horse, Falada. Through the intercession of a goose boy, Falada (who continues to talk), and a wise king, the ruse is discovered, the princess restored, and the serving maid brutally punished. Kimmel's polished retelling of the tale is given lively support by Sauber's energetic paintings, with picture-frame borders adding a bit of formality to the robust interpretations. Although the faces depicted in the smaller illustrations are not always clear, the large character portraits burst with personality, and the rich textures of the clothing and goods give the whole a sense of earthy immediacy. This is one of those picture books that needs to find its way into the hands of older children and adolescents; they'll be the audience best equipped to appreciate the artwork's romantic appeal and the stark justice of the story.
