Pirate Princess: And Other Fairy Tales
Rabbi Nahman of Bratslav said, "If one is to believe what people say, stories are written to put them to sleep. I tell mine to wake them up." In this first-ever collection of his tales for a general audience, a princess becomes a pirate in her quest for her one true love; a poor man hopes to uncover treasure in a faraway city; a young prince suffers from a mysterious malady; and a fixer shows the king the way to happiness. These seven stories of dreamers and doers are beautifully retold by master folklorist Neil Philip, with jewel-toned Chagallesque illustrations by noted artist Mark Weber.
