EIGHT BRAND NEW PRINCESS STORIES, for readers who like princesses to do the rescuing themselves!
An enchantress' mirror travels through time and from east to west to answer the question: what makes a princess excellent? Eight curious, empowered girls have the answer. These princesses fight knights, sail the high seas, rescue crocodiles and save communities, with barely a prince in sight. Gorgeous, jewel-like illustrations from the fabulously talented Lydia Corry.
