I love a good princess story as well as the next person and this one is full of surprises. Just when I thought I had figured out where it was going, it took a turn to the left. This quest for a fulfilling life is told with grace and good humor, the author poking just the right amount of fun at the ridiculousness of the situation. There is plenty of playfulness in combining the princes’ names with their quests and the whimsical illustrations just add to the fun.
