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 get a twist 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.
I am so excited for another "Princess" book from Jessica Day George. I adored Princess of the Midnight Ball and Princess of Glass. I'm sad it's the last we'll see of the princesses of Westfalin but I still can't wait to see how the author spins Red Riding Hood and Robin Hood. I think Princess of the Midnight Ball is my very favorite retelling of the Twelve Dancing Princesses :)
