Publisher's Summary

In this delightful third book, Alethea Kontis weaves together some fine-feathered fairy tales to focus on Friday Woodcutter, the kind and loving seamstress. When Friday stumbles upon seven sleeping brothers in her sister Sunday's palace, she takes one look at Tristan and knows he's her future. But the brothers are cursed to be swans by day. Can Friday's unique magic somehow break the spell?

    "Lovely as expected!"

    I have read (and own) all of the Wiodcutter related books. (Enchanted, Hero, Trixter, and Dearest) I adore each and every one. I cannot wait for the others to come out! I love Alethea's imagination and storytelling abilities! This book series is great for all ages!

    If you could sum up Dearest in three words, what would they be?

    Sweet, lovely, surprising


    Any additional comments?

    This series has turned out to be one of my favorite fairy tale retellings. The way Kontis involves so many different fairy tales is so enjoyable. This one had bits of the Seven (6 in the original Grimm) Swans, The Goose Girl, and a hint of Peter Pan.

    Friday is the sixth Woodcutter sister and she gets a bad rap for being dull. I must disagree wholeheartedly. She is pure of heart and incredibly brave and loving. She is a princess, yet she takes all of the refugee children under her wing and teaches them the value of being useful.

    She sets about to help a cursed princess and her seven brothers when she discovers them by mistake one night after chasing down a dog. The brothers are endlessly entertaining. I especially loved the twins (as I have twin brothers) and their sense of humor.

    I'm just really happy about this book. 5 Stars. Keep 'em coming, Ms. Kontis!
