The Princesses Have a Ball Rating:

Every night twelve princesses wear out their shoes. The king wonders what his daughters are up to at night. But with the help of a clever cobbler, the perfect shoes, and a very special ball, the princesses soon make their own dreams come true!

"Bateman's verse uses wordplay and offers a fresh look at the beloved story. Cravath's cartoon pictures have just the right look, adding amusing anachronistic features such as an airplane advertising a big reward while men in tights and women in ball gowns frolic below. Pair this inventive story with any of the more traditional versions for a fun look at classic tales and their retreads." -- Booklist
