The Princess's Blankets

authors: Carol Ann Duffy
illustrator: Catherine Hyde

A young princess who can never feel warm. A worried king and queen. A stranger in black with hard gray eyes. A musician with a kind and good heart. Carol Ann Duffy’s powerful new fairy tale explores the depths of human fears, frailty, and love, complemented by a series of beautiful, atmospheric paintings by acclaimed artist Catherine Hyde. Compelling, lyrical, magical — this is the tale of The Princess's Blankets.

"A princess lived, once, who was always cold. Even when the bright sun was at its hottest, she never felt warm."
A Templar Books title, an imprint of Candlewick Press
