the swan princess
This book is about a girl called Eliza, she is very pretty but her horrible step mother tries to make her ugly .The step mum turns Eliza's eleven brothers into swans. Eliza cures her bothers by making nettle shirts but on the eleventh shirt she runs out of nettles and so her final brother has one wing. I enjoyed this story.

The Swan Princess
A beautiful tale about a Princess called Eliza. Her evil stepmother changed her brothers into swans but she saved them by making them special shirts to make them human again.

A Swan-Stunning Story!
I really liked reading this book. Some characters turn into swans and the story has a happy ending. If you want a fairytale with action then this is the book for you!
