Overview

This charming tale of three princesses and their upbringing was exquisitely written and illustrated in 1938 by the author for her children. Queen Augusta, King Berrybutton's wife, has raised their three daughters—Seraphina, Angela, and Columbine—with a keen sense of their somewhat embellished royal ancestry. The three sisters, however, are in for a surprise when they all are afflicted with common, but unsightly, ailments on the morning of their collective wedding to three strategically selected princes. Each prince sets out to find the remedy for his beloved's ailment, and in the searching a rich tapestry of extraordinary characters--kings and queens from distant lands, gryphons, dragons, peddlers, syllabubs—and of grand adventures and moral tales unfolds.
