This is such an excellent book ! P passed it to me and the girls are now hooked ! Everynight, for nearly the whole of last week - it has been just this story over and over. It's such a gem and tells of how a king wants to find a suitable prince for the lovely princess and how the princes rival to find the most impressive gift to win the princess' hand. Ultimately, it is the prince who came back empty handed as he was too compassionate and kind to capture any creature to impress the King, that won the princess' heart. Totally engaging and imaginative, this will be a sure hit for boys and girls alike.
Angie, if you are reading this - i want one for my home library too !
