There's a Princess in the Palace

retold by ZoŽ B. Alley
with pictures by R. W. Alley

"Like their 2008 collection Thereís a Wolf at the Door, with which this volume shares its oversize format, the Alleysí panel-art versions of Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, The Frog Prince, and The Princess and the Pea are part retelling, part parody. Knit together with some creative genealogy, the stories downplay beauty and romance and concentrate on feisty dialogue... This will enter the rotation of bedtime favorites."
--Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

"The team who dreamed up the hilarious Thereís a Wolf at the Door is back with princess fairy tales that are as fluid as they are fractured. This colorful, oversize graphic novel is packed with puns, witticisms, and sarcastic asides... Marvelous for anyone with a wry sense of humor... deserves a place in every library."
--School Library Journal, Starred Review

"The Alley duo spread the joy... into another oversized and overstuffed (with giggles, that is) volume. Within a graphic-novel format, the tales... develop familial and hilarious interconnections while retaining the storiesí traditional structures... Smartly hysterical."
--Kirkus, Starred Review
