    I ran across this unexpectedly in the "library" in the back of my son's classroom, and read it out of curiosity. This is a seriously cool story. I want to buy it now! I love the wonderful equality and love between the two sisters, how well they support one another while still being radically different people. I love the way their mother, the Queen, is a minor character overall, yet a real human being who feels fear, makes mistakes, and yet refuses to let her children suffer for the deal she was f I ran across this unexpectedly in the "library" in the back of my son's classroom, and read it out of curiosity.

I love the way their mother, the Queen, is a minor character overall, yet a real human being who feels fear, makes mistakes, and yet refuses to let her children suffer for the deal she was forced into making with the evil goblins who want to steal her daughter. And most of all, I LOVE Tattergood. What a wonderful character! I love how she is her own person from the beginning, how fearless she is, how forthright she is, how brave and strong and fun! I was a little disappointed that she did end up marrying the Prince, but she handled it on her own terms, chose him for herself, and forced him to show he was worthy of her. Then she became the ruler of the kingdom she grew up in! Fabulous! Frankly, this would make an AWESOME Hayao Miyazaki film, would it not?

    Tattergood is such a wonderful character! She reminded me of Lindgren's Pippi Longstocking. This princess is unique, 'different' and she is completely ok with it. She is confident and brave. She loves her sister and family very much. Tatterhood is a great character to be introduced to children. Mills illustrations are very beautiful. This is another picture book I would love to buy.

    Challenge #33 A book from your childhood (POPsugar reading challenge 2015) This is one of the best children's books I have ever read. It is an awesome fairy tale with princesses and curses and magic, but is all about sisterly love instead of romantic love. My mother would read it to my sister and me when we were kids, and we loved it. Also, the illustrations are gorgeous!

    A beautifully-illustrated retelling of a Norwegian fairytale, where a Queen who wishes for a child swallows two flowers, one beautiful and one rather strange. Nine months later she gives birth to twins, one the image of a princess and the other who insists on wearing a tattered hood and running wild. Yet, it is down to the strange princess to save her younger sister when the hobgoblins get involved... Delighted to add this to my collection today - you can never have enough fairytales where the gi A beautifully-illustrated retelling of a Norwegian fairytale, where a Queen who wishes for a child swallows two flowers, one beautiful and one rather strange.

Delighted to add this to my collection today - you can never have enough fairytales where the girls take matters into their own hands, particularly when the story is accompanied by such delicate illustrations.

    A friend recommended a Tatterhood book. This is the only one I could get from my library. I like the story. It looked like a great book to be read to a little girl. I might consider getting it for my great-niece. I would like to find more of these books. But I want to check them out before buying them for her.

    Mills presents a different sort of princess. One worth considering.

    This is a very fun book - about a female fairytale feminist! I love it!

    Tatterhood and the Hobgoblins is my very favorite fairy tale! This rendition by Lauren Mills is so well done, I know it will capture your admiration as well. Tatterhood is a twin. Her sister is lovely. Tatterhood is, well, not. Her hair is a disaster; she rides around on a goat! She gets into all sort of mischief. But when the fairies threaten to destroy all, Tatterhood is the only one who can save the world -- precisely because she is so different.

    I read this story as a child and loved it, now as an adult I still like it but have a slightly different perspective now that I am older. I know it is a children's tale so it moves very fast and doesn't go into great detail, and little things bothered me, but if this were turned into a novel and fleshed out I think I would love it more as an older person. It does have a good moral to the story, though and great artwork!

    This has all of the elements of a real fairy tale ... even some 'creepiness' (swapping the head of a princess with the head of a calf!). The art complemented the tale. (However, poor Tatterhood held her head at some strange angles.)

    A fairly tale that I somehow missed growing up, and a new favorite. My children will know this by heart

    A beautiful fairytale. This book teaches that beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
