This month BfK features Jane Ray’s cover for The Twelve Dancing Princesses. We’re particularly delighted to have the opportunity to use this illustration as it enables us to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Orchard Books - they’re 10 this year! And also to thank them for their help in producing our July cover.
A sensitive portrayal of the relationship betwen Melanie and her younger sister, Flora, set against a colourful Caribbean background of mango trees, markets, moonlight and more than occasional mischief. It's this mischief (and their parents' intervention in it) which forms the substance of four amusing stories that together make a delightful read-aloud book for sixes to eights and an inviting proposition for confident solo readers.
