In ten gentle chapters with simple sketches we meet another charming child--this one lame but royal, and an orphan. A healthy baby prince is dropped by a careless nurse enroute to his christening; when both his parents die, he is at the mercy of his ambitious uncle/regent who has him secreted away to a lonely tower on a barren plain. With only a female convict as a nanny, the little lame prince grows to boyhood in utter loneliness, until his fairy godmother gives him a magic cloak which he uses to travel on the sly. Not to escape, but to see more of the world, and the kingdom which should be his. But would the people accept a crippled monarch, even if he could escape and denounce his uncle? The cloak has an even greater significance for him, since it provides him with love (reminding him that ONE person cares for him) and hope. Is being a king someday what he really wants for personal happiness? An ingenuous tale which will soften the hearts of modern readers. It is a pleasure to publish this new, high quality, and affordable edition of this timeless story.
