Description
I live with Reverend Knight and his twelve sons. Every morning those boys' shoes are worn to threads, though they claim to have slept all night. And who do you think gets the blame for twenty-four ruined shoes? Me -- the dog! All right, all right, so I chew one up every once in a while -- but not twenty-four at a time. No, those boys are up to something...and they aren't telling their father.

Luckily, Reverend's got a new housekeeper. Her name is Sunday, her voice is like a song-bird's, and her biscuits are slap yo'self good. . . . But can Sunday use her sweet magic to bring the Knight family together?

In this modern, hip retelling of the classic tale The Twelve Dancing Princesses, actress and choreographer Debbie Allen proves herself to be a storyteller extraordinaire. Rising young artist Kadir Nelson's brilliant artwork bursts with color, richness, and energy. Together they have created a high-stepping story about twelve brothers who will dance their way into your heart.
