Restless girls

Restless girls jessie burton

From the internationally bestselling author of The Miniaturist, Jessie Burton, comes her first story for children - a feminist fairytale retelling of The Twelve Dancing Princess. Beautifully illustrated by Angela Barrett, this is now available in a gorgeous paperback edition

For her twelve daughters, Queen Laurelia's death in a motor car accident is a disaster beyond losing a mother. Their father, King Alberto, cannot bear the idea of the princesses ever being in danger and decides his daughters must be kept safe at all costs. Those costs include their lessons, their possessions and, most importantly, their freedom.

But the eldest, Princess Frida, will not bend to his will without a fight and she still has one possession her father can't take: the power of her imagination. And so, with little but wits and ingenuity to rely on, Frida and her sisters begin their fight to be allowed to live.

Jessie Burton is the author of the Sunday Times number one and New York Times bestsellers The Mimiaturist and The Muse. In its year of publication The Miniaturist sold over a million copies, and in 2017 it was adapted into a major TV series for BBC One. The Restless Girls is Jessie's first story for children. Her books have been translated into 38 languages and she is a regular essay writer for newspapers and magazines. She lives in London.

Angela Barrett studied at Maidstone College of Art and the Royal College of Art. She has taught Illustration at Cambridge College of Technology and Drawing at Chelsea College and is widely regarded as one of the UK's finest illustrators. She won the 1989 Smarties Book Prize for Can It Be True? and has been shortlisted three times for the Kurt Maschler Award and once for the Kate Greenaway Medal.
