The Restless Girls (A Very Different Fairytale)

, , , ,

This lovely book to treasure is a feminist version of the classical fairytale The Twelve Dancing Princesses. It is written by bestselling author Jessie Burton and beautifully illustrated throughout in colour by multi-award winning artist Angela Barrett. The inspirational story about family, sisterhood, imagination and bravery.

For her twelve daughters, Queen Laurelia’s death in a motor car accident is a disaster beyond losing a mother. Their father, King Alberto, cannot bear the idea of his precious and gifted princesses ever being in danger so he decides that his daughters must be kept safe at all costs. Those costs include their lessons, their possessions and, significantly, their freedom.

But the eldest, Princess Frida, will not bend to his will without a fight and she still has one possession her father can’t take: the power of her imagination. And so, with little but wits and ingenuity to rely on, Frida and her sisters begin their fight to be allowed to live…
