Overview

Max, a crane, decides one day to walk away from his flock. He had been teased and put down his entire life because of his crocked wing. He can't take it anymore. He walks away, refusing to ever fly again.

Max wanders into the town of Troubadour. That night, he falls asleep underneath an ornately adorned statue.

During the night, the statue cries on Max. Magically, the tears of the statue allow the bird to hear the words of the statue, who is not a statue at all. Max discovers that the statue is really a young prince, the former Prince of Troubadour, who has been trapped inside a statue by the evil witch, Marissa.

The Happy Prince tells Max his sad tale: Marissa has entombed his parents, sent away the King's advisors on a endlessly sailing ship (including The Prince's love of his life, Gwen) and put the townspeople of Troubadour under a spell.

The Happy Prince asks his new friend Max to do him a favor, remove the jewels from his body and give them to the poor of Troubadour.

While trying to fulfill The Prince's wishes, Max meets three new friends: Pinky, a former resident of the castle who only wants a happy home, Cora Brown, a smart, take-charge squirrel who is dealing with the death of her brother, and Mr. Mouse, a naive and sugar-loving town mouse who just wants the town sweets to return to normal.

The four animals survive several fur-raising adventures while attempting to fulfill the Prince's wishes. During their adventures, the witch Marissa, discovers The Prince's ability to talk to animals. She decides to melt the statue, thus killing the human prince.

Max cannot let this happen. He had to do the one thing he promised himself he would never do again, his has to fly.

In order to save The Prince, Max must find Gwen because she can lead Max to the Sorcerer, who is the only person who can defeat Marissa. This is the only way to save The Happy Prince and restore the townspeople of Troubadour to their formerly happy lives.

Meet the Author

Author and mother of an autistic boy. I wrote about my passion, autism, in "A Parents' Guide to Early Autism Intervention," which is a useful guide for parents who are just beginning their autism journey. Another source for autism-related information came from writing my autism-related blog on the website, ModernMom.com. This lead to another book that I recently published called, "Two Years Autism Blogs Featured on ModenMom.com." My second published ebook is a fantasy called, "Max and The Happy Prince." Max is a crane who cannot fly, but must learn to take to the sky in order to save a town trapped by an evil witch. My third ebook is "Warsaw Freedom," the story of two Jewish women who are smuggled out of the Warsaw Ghetto during World War II. I am the author of screenplays that include "Warsaw," "Max and The Happy Prince," "Winningdale," and "Mystery Shop Wedding." I am a produced screenwriter with credits "Don't Fall Asleep" (Amazon, Itunes), "Safeword" (due out in 2012), and my autism-related film short, "Autism and Cake" starring Ed Asner who plays a grandfather who struggles to accept his autistic grandson. I blog on the website modernmom.com weekly, tweet on @tipsautismmom, and you can find me on LinkedIn.
