The Glassmaker's Daughter, Paperback / softback Book

The Glassmaker's Daughter Paperback / softback

Illustrated by Jane Ray


Daniela the glassmaker's daughter is grumpy and never smiles.

Her father promises a beautiful glass palace to anyone who can make her laugh.

People come from far and wide to try their luck in amusing Daniela.

But mask makers, lion tamers and magicians cannot raise a smile from the princess.

It is only when a young apprentice makes the first looking glass that Daniela learns to smile - at her own grumpy reflection!

This beautiful fable set in sixteenth-century Venice features stunning illustrations from award-winning artist Jane Ray alongside a poetic text.
