Pirate Princess and Other Stories, The Pirate Princess and Other Stories, The

Written by Neil Philip
Illustrated by Mark Weber

Princesses and poor men, rascals and reversals: In seven fairy tales rich in story, beauty, and meaning, Neil Philip and Mark Weber celebrate the incredible work of Rabbi Nahman of Bratslav.

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.



REVIEWS:

"This handsome, large-format volume contains seven fairy tales adapted from the stories written by seventeenth-century Hasidic rabbi Nahman ben Simha, whose recognition of the way traditional tales are constructed predates that of most folklorists. . . . The lively collection of varied talkes begins with the story of a princess who turns into a pirate to escape unwanted suitors and rejoin the man she loves. . . . Weber's many goache paintings have the stylistic feeling of Chagall. . . . A lively, appealing collection." -- Booklist
