A Palace Full of Princesses by Sally Gardner

A Palace Full of Princesses contains four of Sally Gardner's Early Reader stories - The Frog Prince, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty & Snow White.

Each story has about 6-7 chapters, large font and lots of colourful pictures on each page.

The stories are traditional with the occasional modern twist and a little humour. 

Snow White has all the dark twists and turns you expect, Cinderella is wish fulfillment personified, the Frog Prince is cheekily persistent & Sleeping Beauty ends with 

"The prince and princess lived very happily. They had sixteen children and their favourite story was, of course, the story of Sleeping Beauty."

Sixteen children!

All the pages are decorated with pretty borders, frames, stars and lots of delightful details.

A Palace Full of Princesses is the perfect gift for new readers or to read aloud with your princess-loving 4+ child.
