Called Princess Horrid by everyone except her parents, a very badly-behaved princess is transformed into a kitten and becomes the property of the lowliest kitchen maid in the castle.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3-- Mischievous Princess Hyacinth is called Princess Horrid by everyone but her parents. But "what is the point of being a princess if you have to be good?" she asks. Making an apple-pie bed for the Dowager Duchess is one prank too many, however, and the Duchess, who has witchy origins, concocts a spell that turns the princess into a kitten. (Readers unfamiliar with "apple-pie bed" will have to wait for several pages to see an illustration of short-sheeting.) The kitten is taken in by a lowly servant, Pots-and-Pans, who soon guesses the enchantment and figures out how to reverse it. After the Princess becomes herself again, only sweeter, Pots-and-Pans becomes her lady-in-waiting. The illustrations match the tale's spirit. The ladies of the royal court are caricatured with bouffant hairdos and dresses to match. No one in the story is very nice; suitably there's humor but little warmth in the art. Silver borders on a peach background nicely set off both text and pictures. This long literary fairy tale is rather a satire on the genre, but it doesn't have the charm of Haugaard's Prince Boghole (Macmillan, 1987). Although it has witty passages, it is quite predictable and drifts away without punch. --Leda Schubert, Vermont Department of Education, Montpelier
