Fairy Tale Paper Doll Book Published

For a while now, I've been working on a fairy tale paper doll book.  It was a bit of an on & off project when I had the time.  I took all of the previous Fairy Tale Friday dolls, expanded their wardrobes, and added three new characters.

I wanted the covers to look a bit like a classic fairy tale book.  I also wanted to fit 4 dolls on the front & back covers.

It was really important to me that these prince & princess characters where diverse.  Sure, I only had 2 of each so that doesn't lend itself to a lot of diversity, but there ARE 4 unique skin tones here.

Here's a small preview of the paper dolls dressed up.  Sleeping Beauty and the Frog Prince are on the top row, with the Beast and the Snow Queen on the bottom.

And here's a preview of the whole book. It includes 12 full-color pages and 2 coloring pages.  The characters in this set are: Snow White, Cinderella, Beauty, Rapunzel, Red Riding Hood, the Little Mermaid, Goldilocks, Sleeping Beauty, the Snow Queen, Prince Charming, the Frog Prince, and the Beast.

Of all of these, Sleeping Beauty is my favorite! Obviously these are sort of Disney influenced but not tremendously.  Cinderella and Beauty are probably the most Disney-ish. And I used the same colors & patterns on Beauty and the Beast so that they were a cohesive pair.

If you're looking to pick up your own copy, it's available on  I'll get it up on Amazon as soon as I order my proof copy....which will be soon because I'm eager to see this in print!
