I could not put this book down. I love this fairy tale anyway but Marillier made it completely new. Juliette Marillier wrote Daughter of the Forest, one of my very favorite fairy tale retellings of the Grimm's Brother's Wild Swans stories. Wildwood Dancing is based on another fairy tale, The Twelve Dancing Princesses only in this case there are five sisters, Tatiana, Jenica, Paula, Iulia, and Stella who go dancing in a magic kingdom.
Jenica and Gogu, her enchanted frog, must figure out a way to keep the secret of the Other Kingdom safe and also keep the sister's ill father's business out of the hands of Cezar, their grasping cousin.
