A Weave of Words

Illustrated by

When Prince Vachagan decides to marry Anait, a weaver's daughter, she insists that he learn to read and write and that he learn a skilled trade. Her demands serve the prince well when he is caught by a three-headed monster and he can use his skills to send a secret message to his bride — who then rides into battle to rescue her husband. This adaptation of an Armenian folk tale, brought to life by Raúl Colón's luminous illustrations, offers a refreshing alternative to traditional fairy tales in its portrayal of strong, smart princess who saves the day!
