Master storyteller Robin McKinley here spins two new fairy tales and retells two cherished classics. All feature princesses touched with or by magic.

There is Linadel, who lives in a kingdom next to Faerieland, where princesses are stolen away on their seventeenth birthdays - and Linadel's seventeenth birthday is tomorrow. And Korah, whose brother is bewitched by the magical Golden Hind; now it is up to her to break the spell. Rana must turn to a talking frog to help save her kingdom from the evil Aliyander.

And then there are the twelve princesses, enspelled to dance through the soles of their shoes every night... These are tales to read with delight!
