The Light Princess

George MacDonald, Author, Katie T. Treherne, Illustrator, Robin McKinley, Illustrator Houghton Mifflin Harcourt P $13.95 (43p) ISBN 978-0-15-245300-8
McKinley's deft adaptation trims the story without sacrificing the witty vitality of MacDonald's 19th century original. The story of a bewitched princess (gravity does not affect her) and the prince who will sacrifice his life for her is presented in a lavishly illustrated package. Treherne's intensely decorative drawings add a striking visual dimension: her use of rich colors and elegantly stylized figures creates a romantic, mysterious mood. Each picture is bordered by a motif that emphasizes an element of the story, which effectively enhances both text and pictures. All ages. (April)
