Then, after Zita's twelfth birthday, the princesses all fall mysteriously ill. The only clue is their strangely worn and tattered shoes. With the help of her friends--Breckin the stable boy, Babette the witch, and Milek the soldier--Zita follows her bewitched sisters into a magical world of endless dancing and dreams. But something more sinister is afoot--and unless Zita and her friends can break the curse, the twelve princesses will surely dance to their deaths.
A classic fairy tale with a bold twist, "The Thirteenth Princess" tells the unforgettable story of a magical castle, true love, spellbound princesses--and the young girl determined to save them all.
- I admit to judging this book by it's cover. I saw it sitting on the shelf at the library, and I was like "oh pretty!" I took it home, but it didn't disappoint.
- This was a really fun and cute re-telling of The Twelve Dancing Princesses.
- I love the cover!! The art is fantastic, and I love the colors. I also love how the title is big and pretty.
- I really enjoyed this twist on the tale. It was different from all the others I've read.
- I really liked Zita. She was a fun character, and I almost felt like she was my little sister.
- It is a good thing this was a fairy tale, cause sisters do not get along that well in the real world. All of Zita's sisters were so kind, they all got along, and they it was like a big group of best friends.
- I liked Breckin and Milek a lot as well. Breckin was especially fun. I wish there had been more of Milek.
- I really enjoyed the whole story. Adding Babette and Taika in there were really cool, and I like how the curse came about and such.
- I would definitely recommend this to fairy tale lovers.
