Once Upon a Time...A princess laughed, A princess sang, another made a trade. One told stories, One was kind, another refused to wed. One cast spells, One was cursed, another silently sewed every day. And one tossed golden apples away...Ten beloved princess stories are ingeniously told and gorgeously illustrated with hidden pictures for readers to find by author Grace Maccarone and artist Gail de Marcken. These tales set around the world will delight readers, happily ever after.

The accompanying text by Grace Maccarone rattles along in droll rhyme that is a pleasure to read aloud (though in print so small that adults may do some poring themselves).
