Princess of the Silver Woods
Written by: Jessica Day George
Released: November 13th 2012 by Bloomsbury USA Children's Books
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 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 love the covers for the first two Princess books (and, of course, the books themselves) and this one is not disappointing at all! As a bonus, it comes out right after my birthday! Happy belated birthday to me! ;) Plus, just how amazing does this book sound? Robin Hood and Little Red Riding Hood? It's two Hoods for one!*
I really hope that some of my favourite characters from the first two novels make appearances in this one too - even if just for a page or two!
*wow, that was a really bad pun...
