All the classic elements are here: a beautiful young princess, an evil witch, a helpful frog (a.k.a. the knight), a girl-eating dragon, and a dilemma that's as tough as the scales on that same dragon's back. But this enchanting new story casts its own unique spell with a delightfully funny, contemporary incantation over the traditional fairytale genre. Frogs refuse to be kissed; the handsome duke faints when he tries to replace the princess' missing glass slipper, and the dragon changes into a chubby, white bunny.
The story begins with Princess Lunetta's life being promised to a nasty witch who wants to feed her to an even nastier dragon. Thanks to the help of a brave frog, and her own confidence and self-reliance, the princess' rather smelly solution gets right to the heart -- and sole -- of the matter.
Like her wonderful tale, Leslie Elizabeth Watts' softly glowing illustrations are the perfect blend of fairy dusted magic and warm realism that will bewitch every young child and their parents too.
