I didn't find this book very good. The plot was fine, but the adventure is weak compared to Vivian Vande Velde's other books.

I LOVED this book! Sometimes they have fairy tales where the princess is exeptionally smart or exeptionally beautiful...or even exeptionally stupid and ugly but with a kind heart. THIS princess isn't ANY of those. In fact, she's quite ordiary! And the ending is really sweet...

I expected more of this book. I was hooked on it, and it was a good fantasy read, but I have read better. GOOD BOOK!

This is a marvelous story. Vivian Vande Velde created an ordinary princess and places her in a situation far from normal. All of the characters are well developed for a short book, and a lot of fun. Giants, dragons, witches, and magic mirrors are just some of the things included in this great book. I recommend it to lovers of the fantasy genre, and also to anyone who thought fairy tales would end differently in 'real life.' Enjoy!
