For the fairy tale lover interested in starting their own picture book collection, look no further than Alissa Heyman's upcoming book Twelve Dancing Unicorns. In this beautifully illustrated retelling of The Twelve Dancing Princesses, a young girl offers to help the king uncover the secrets behind why his prized unicorns disappear every night.
The writing is charming, the illustrations enchanting, and the story is full of magic. For those familiar with the original tale, this version keeps the simple plot arc. The main difference is the substitution of unicorns for the princesses and the author's switching the protagonists from soldier to little girl.
