Every morning the king's twelve daughters need twelve new pairs of shoes. But why? John Cech's retelling of the classic fairy tale and Lucy Corvino's whimsical illustrations will introduce a new generation of readers to this story about following one's heart. It is aimed at children aged between 5 and 11 years old. Once upon a time, when a miller met the King, he proudly announced that his beautiful daughter had a special talent: she could actually spin straw into gold. That caught His Majesty's attention immediately; unfortunately, it wasn't true. Yet the poor girl's life depended on completing this impossible task. With lyricism and grace, John Cech retells this suspenseful story. Martin Hargreaves offers richly elaborate artwork that truly captures the characters' personalities and their far-away fairy-tale world.
