Overview

The Enchanted Ring, A Princess's Adventure by Steven M. Overton

Olde World Puppet Theatre Studios is proud to release The Enchanted Ring, a Princess's Adventure.

Adventure awaits around every corner in the Land of Belvuria, where dragons gracefully soar though the skies and mystical unicorns prance unhindered on the ancient paths of gnarled old forests.

What's a beautiful young fairy tale Princess to do when her favorite birthday present gets pilfered on the morning of her ninth birthday?

How does Enchantra the Witch dare to come and take one of her presents, and who cares if she was riding some new-fangled vacuum cleaner named Kirby. Seems like she's got the whole give-a-present birthday thing backwards.

Well, in typical fairy tales of old, Princess Kathryn would find a nearby handsome knight to send on a quest to retrieve it, while sitting helplessly in her ivory tower awaiting his return.

Not in the Tales of Belvuria, however, and definitely not our Royal Princess Kathryn.

Join us for madcap adventure as our fiery little Princess dons a suit of armor and, with the help of gentle old Sir Sampson, the Knight, battles spooky Spiders, matches wits with a group of crazy little Pixie Pirates, enchants the King and Queen of the Faeries, and bedazzles a Unicorn, all in a single afternoon.

This fairy tale quest of old imparts a very important message to young readers -- anything is possible for a little girl with a touch of bravery, spunk, and some creative thinking.

The Enchanted Ring is written for children 9 to 11, however it also makes for a fun special bedtime story for younger children, sharing with their mother or father (or grandmother or grandfather).

This is a grand girl-power story, but we hear little boys like it as well.

The Enchanted Ring, a Princess's Adventure, is the first in a series of books adapted from award-winning live puppet plays by Steven M. Overton of The Olde World Puppet Theatre Studios.

With 31 illustrations using elaborate puppets and beautiful paintings, this is a fairy tale book unlike any other.
