Diane Zahler made my childhood magical, and while I can't say this book was my favorite now, I adored her books when I was a little girl! ( )

I enjoyed this retelling of The Twelve Dancing Princesses, and I absolutely love the cover illustration. I do have to say that it is a pretty quick read, and there isn't necessarily a great deal of depth to it. But it holds up well, and younger audiences especially should enjoy it. ( )

A retelling of the twelve dancing princess except this time there is a thirteenth princess, Zita. Zita's mother dies when she's born and her father sends her to live with the servants so she's raised to be a kitchen maid. Zita and her sisters find a way to sneak Zita into their room, then strange events begin happening to the other princesses. Zita enlists the help of a witch and a stable boy to figure out what is going on. This book is aimed at children but there were a few too many references to sex in it for me to feel it is suitable for kids younger than around 5th grade. ( )

Young Reader Reaction: Teen Reviewer 1: The Thirteenth Princess is an enchanting, cute read for fourth to seventh grade readers. I enjoyed this book from beginning to end. From the dark-heartedness of an evil witch to the magic of a first love, all aspects of this book fully captured my heart. Although I already am a junior in high school, the charm of a cute fairy tale pulled me in. It would make a great gift for little sisters or other young girls.

Teen Reviewer 2: Although it is not my favorite version of The Twelve Dancing Princesses, The Thirteenth Princess is still a charming twist that does hold a surprise or two while staying faithful to its original plot. I would recommend this book to middle school students, but as a whole, it would probably be more interesting for someone who has not read The Twelve Dancing Princesses yet.

Pros: The Thirteenth Princess is a story that will bring readers back to their childhood dreams of knights and castles, leaving them with a smile on their face once they finish.
