The Princess in the Forest
by Sibylle Von Olfers


Enlarge view

This charming and beautifully illustrated book describes the day in the life of the Princess who lives in a castle in the forest.  The nature folk of the forest are her friends and companions, and her day begins when the dew maids come to help her wash and dress.  She has "honey and jelly and fruits of the forest" for breakfast, attends school, plays with her woodland friends, and when it is time to go home, the "star folk" light her way home to the castle.

A truly delightful book with wonderful pictures for children ages 3-7 (adults and art lovers of all ages will be enchanted too!)

Renowned children's author Sibylle Von Olfers (1881 - 1916) uses a blend of natural observation and simple design in the art nouveau style that critics have compared to the works of Kate Greenaway and Elsa Beskow.

Hardcover book with beautiful color illustrations. 8 x 11 inches.  Recommended for ages 3 - 7. years.
