The Princess' Blankets

by Carol Ann Duffy, illustrated by Catherine Hyde - £7.99  Templar Publishing (2013)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781848771611 | ISBN 10: 1848771614

A powerful new fairy tale of a princess who cannot get warm, no matter what is done for her. A stranger with cold eyes brings her the earth's blanket, the forest's blanket, the ocean's blanket and more, but nothing can warm the cold princess until one day a musician wanders into the land, and her heart melts with warmth and love.
This brooding story from the Poet Laureate, Carol Ann Duffy, is illustrated by a series of specially-commissioned dramatic paintings by artist Catherine Hyde. Combined with stunning design and print finishes, this is an extraordinary book, destined to become a classic.
