2 Princess of the Silver Woods Guest Post by Jessica Day George


What is your favorite fairy tale?

East o’ the Sun, West o’ the Moon.  It’s a Scandinavian fairy tale that seems like a mash up of the myth of Cupid and Psyche and Beauty and the Beast.  It’s a wonderful story, particularly if you like polar bears (and I do).  And I actually retold it myself in SUN AND MOON, ICE AND SNOW!



Summary: When Petunia, the youngest of King Gregor's twelve dancing daughters, is invited to visit an elderly friend in the neighboring country of Westfalin, she welcomes the change of scenery. But in order to reach Westfalin, Petunia must pass through a forest where strange two-legged wolves are rumored to exist. Wolves intent on redistributing the wealth of the noble citizens who have entered their territory. But the bandit-wolves prove more rakishly handsome than truly dangerous, and it's not until Petunia reaches her destination that she realizes the kindly grandmother she has been summoned to visit is really an enemy bent on restoring an age-old curse.

The stories of Red Riding Hood and Robin Hood come together as Petunia and her many sisters take on bandits, grannies, and the new King Under Stone to end their family curse once and for all.

    1. Me too! I've only read a few of her books, but I've liked all of them. I'm reading Princess of the Silver Woods right now. So far it's really good.
