The quintessential collection of classic princess tales, fondly and faithfully retold and lavished with rich, expressive illustrations.

Spirited or sacrificing, spoiled or innocent, the iconic heroines in these cherished tales have long had a hold on children’s imagination. Amy Ehrlich deftly recaptures these princess stories with warmth and wit, never diluting their central power. And Gary Blythe brings them to life in splendid paintings glowing with true enchantment.

Amy Ehrlich is the award-winning author of more than thirty books for children and young adults. She also had an illustrious career as an editor of books for young readers and worked with many of the great authors and artists in the field. About With a Mighty Hand, she says, I ve always been fascinated by the Torah both as an object and as a repository of stories. When I set out to create a version of the Torah, I wanted to make it accessible without sacrificing its power and strangeness and the rhythm of its language. I decided to write it as free verse and to focus on the characters and the heart-stopping drama in the narrative. Amy Ehrlich lives in Vermont s Northeast Kingdom.
