Princesses and poor men, rascals and reversals: In seven fairy tales rich in story, beauty, and meaning, Neil Philip and Mark Weber celebrate the incredible work of Rabbi Nahman of Bratslav.

Rabbi Nahman of Bratslav said, "If one is to believe what people say, stories are written to put them to sleep. I tell mine to wake them up." In this first-ever collection of his tales for a general audience, a princess becomes a pirate in her quest for her one true love; a poor man hopes to uncover treasure in a faraway city; a young prince suffers from a mysterious malady; and a fixer shows the king the way to happiness. These seven stories of dreamers and doers are beautifully retold by master folklorist Neil Philip, with jewel-toned Chagallesque illustrations by noted artist Mark Weber.
