The Twelve Dancing Princesses

Grimm, Brothers/ Bursi, Simona

A ravishing retelling of the well-loved story by the Brothers Grimm, especially adapted for young English language learners and illustrated in sumptuous eighteenth-century style.

Princesses Amalia, Belinda and their sisters are desperate to escape the oversight of their grieving, overprotective father and go dancing. When a servant finds their dancing shoes worn out night after night, the king sets a challenge to solve the mystery. None succeed until an old soldier in a cloak of invisibility follows the girls to a magical underground realm. With fun activities after the story, and online audio in both British English and American English.
