Fun to read retelling of the 12 princesses, a favorite that I read to my girls when they were younger. Always wondered how they came to be dancing, and have 12 so close in age, so I liked this. Loved the gardens and herbs, knitting, the back story of the white magicians (wonder if there is going to be more in this world?) and the cafe with the pastries.
