I've always been a fan of fairy tales. Princesses. Wicked stepmothers. Clueless fathers. Brothers who need tending. The dark and mysterious forest. Magic spells.
This story has all of these things. It's an old folktale, though you probably know best the version by Hans Christian Andersen.
I won't be surprised if this is your new favorite version of the story.
Jackie Morris has taken the short story and expanded it into a 175 page tale, complete with rich characters and a magnificent setting.
It's illustrated into a beautiful treasure of a book.
Soon after, the king meets and marries a strange woman in white.
It's a rich, beautiful story. So happy I got to read and review this book.
