Rudolph's translation of the Russian story is simple and sweet, telling the tale of a King's devotion to his child in letting her choose his new wife. Following the young princess's dilemma, the pages illustrate with beautiful landscapes and minute details each and every corridor and prospective bride the princess meets. From the laces on dresses to the flowing braids of hair, the painting throughout this book is a marvelous credit to the text.
