The Twelve Dancing Princesses (Adrienne Adams)

Happy Labor Day to those of you here in the U.S.  Sorry I have been absent.  I've been a bit under the weather.  

I have fairy tale pictures today!  Twelve of them, to be exact.  Remember my week of Adrienne Adams fairy tales?  


illustrated by Adrienne Adams.
Holt, Rinehart and Winston, 1966.














I think I'm going to do a series on especially creepy fairy tales this October, in honor of Halloween.  The Grimmest of Grimm, or something like that.  I love my fairy tales!

By the way, have you checked out Julia's Bookbag today?  Head over there now and you'll see MY HOUSE!  Or specifically, MY BOOKSHELVES!  And some dolls and trolls and a teapot and other things I hoard display.  Oh, and these are the floating bookshelves we used, but there are tutorials all over the internet for making your own. Thank you, Melissa, for the honor!

  2. It was so MUCH FUN putting that post together! I was sitting there the other day, feeling so totally uninspired to do a blog post. And then I thought, I know! I'll put together the post on Danzel's books! And then I felt all happy.

    So sorry you've been unwell. Boo!

    LOVE THAT IDEA, yes yes, please do a creepy fairy tale series for Halloween!

    Also. Andrew Lang. Worship at the shrine of.

    1. Well, thank you! I'd honestly forgotten about it, but cold medicine can do that to you. Feeling much better today! I have lots of cool ideas for October. I need to remember that September comes first!

      The Andrew Lang credit was buried in the back of the book. I knew it was different from the Grimm version, which has the hero marrying the eldest princess. Of course it's the youngest and prettiest in this version. :oP

  3. What a beautiful book! I love the illustrations - they have such a wonderful vintage feel to them. And your feature over on Julia's Bookbag is AWESOME! I left a little comment over there as well. xoxo

    1. I've fallen in love with Adrienne Adams's work. I didn't grow up with her books at all. In fact, I wasn't familiar with her until I started seeing her stuff on other blogs. I've been seeking her out ever since!

      And thank you!!! xoxo

  4. I hope you are feeling better now! You remind me I have to get my flu shot and take the kids to the doctor to get theirs too!

    This story has always been a weird one for me. Creepy but very fun at the same time. I love the book you have because those illustrations are seriously awesome!

    1. Oh, wonderful! I'm late to the Adrienne Adams party, I'm afraid. I wasn't familiar with her work until early this year, but I love it now, especially her fairy tales! Thank you so much for stopping by!
