There once was a princess without a kingdom. All she had was a pony and cart and a red umbrella to keep her dry from the rain. Though she lacked worldly possessions, she made up for it in kindness, cleverness, and beauty—qualities that made all the rich princes with kingdoms want to marry her. A wise and witty modern-day fairy tale brought magically to life through Sarah Gibb’s exquisite art.
This book is a great addition to any collection! For starters, the illustrative style is unique and stunning. It perfectly matches the tone of the whimsical, sweet story. It’s refreshing to read a princess book that rejects all the typical tropes of the genre.
This playful princess fairy-tale is unlike any other. Full of humor and wit, the story shows how a genuine, down-to-earth princess finds her kingdom and her king. The illustrations are beautiful and fit for the lovely story!
