The Princess’ Blankets

The Princess’ Blankets by Carol Ann Duffy with paintings by Catherine Hyde

The Princess’ Blankets is the story of a princess who can never feel warm. When the worried King and Queen announce they will reward anyone who can stop the Princess feeling cold, strangers come from far and wide with different ways to warm her up. One such stranger is sure he can cure her and take her to be his wife but things don’t go to plan…

Told in the style of a traditional fairy story but with added magic, music and the most beautiful paintings, The Princess’ Blankets is an unusual picture book with a darkness and depth that is perfect for older children.
