“This nameless princess is a fabulously different kind of hero. I rooted for her triumph with every page turn." —Deborah Halverson, award-winning author, editor
It's like The King's Speech, but for kids.
When it's save-the-kingdom time, a nameless princess has to use her whole toolbox. . .
Organizing a party is hard! When you're a behind-the-scenes inventor princess, it's even worse.
But when your royal parents fall ill with croquet fever? All they want to do is play croquet!
The pressure's on!
Then your royal aunt burns down the castle. . .
And your fairy godmother's booby-trapped gift means. . .
No one hears you at all!
What's a princess to do?
Can she finally use the one tool that's never worked. . .her quiet voice?
Whether it's speaking up at a feast, or reading a map in a strange kingdom, SEVEN KINGDOMS FAIRY TALES are all about finding more magic in your life.
One lucky child gets the perfect leadership gift.
If only the fairies would remember the training wheels!
For ages 9 to 12. Read in any order.
Perfect for fans of funny, fast-paced fairy tales like Jean Ferris' Once Upon a Marigold or E.G. Foley's The Gryphon Chronicles.
Also for friends of entertaining adventure stories. . .with a side of handy life skills. (Jacqueline Davies' The Lemonade Wars or Shannon Hale's Princess Academy.)
