A stunning deluxe edition of Jessie Burton's dazzling feminist fairytale.

Illustrated by Angela Barrett, this extra-special edition includes an exclusive print and gorgeous sprayed edges, all enclosed in a beautiful slipcase. The perfect gift for a special occasion

For her twelve daughters, Queen Laurelia's death in a motor car accident is a disaster beyond losing a mother. Their father, King Alberto, cannot bear the idea of the princesses ever being in danger and decides his daughters must be kept safe at all costs.

Those costs include their lessons, their possessions and, most importantly, their freedom. But the eldest, Princess Frida, will not bend to his will without a fight and she still has one possession her father can't take: the power of her imagination. And so, with little but wits and ingenuity to rely on, Frida and her sisters begin their fight to be allowed to live.

'A magical modern retelling of an old fairytale ... Exquisite' Jacqueline Wilson
