Wildwood Dancing by Juliet Mallilier

wildwood.jpgI adored this fairy tale fantasy. It’s based on The Twelve Dancing Princesses, which was one of my favorite fairy tales as a child (read in those Andrew Lang “color” fairy books-Red Fairy Book, Yellow Fairy Book, etc.), but adds elements of Transylvanian lore, Night People aka vampires, and a bewitched frog. Instead of twelve sisters there are 5, and it’s told from the second eldest’s pov. Gorgeous cover, but the title is not very romantic to those of us from New Jersey! (Wildwood Dancing conjures up images of girls at Wildwood beach partying in the summer.)

  1. Yes, I agree, this book is amazing! I bought it when it was a hardcover and I do not regret spending the extra bucks! And I love Andrew Lang’s Yellow Fairy Book. I’ve also read the Red Book, but not any of the others. Where can you buy the other colors, anyway?

  2. I don’t know if the other colors are still in print or not. I would probably try alibris.com to look for used copies of the. I would think you could still get the blue one at least.
