Lost in the woods

OH dear!

We have been wandering these woods for the past couple days and have not seen a soul in sight.

Time to consult the books.

Fetch the Keeper of the books.

The Keeper appears with the Medieval Traveler's Bookcase handcrafted by Bo Press Miniature Books.

After much flipping of pages in the collection, the Keeper advises to go North.


We proceed over the bridge and meet...

Princess of the Silver Woods
by Jessica Day George
Release date: November 13, 2012

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.

WOULD you like to meet this princess?
