A tale of privilege transformed by humility and grace, this charming tale of three princesses and their upbringing was exquisitely written and illustrated in 1939 by the author for her three children. Queen Augusta, King Berrybutton's wife, has raised three daughters---Seraphina, Angela, and Columbine---with a keen sense of their somewhat embellished royal ancestry. The three sisters, however, are in for a surprise when they all are afflicted with common, but unsightly, ailments on the morning of their collective wedding to three strategically selected princes. Each prince sets out to find the remedy for his beloved's ailment, and in the searching a rich tapestry of extraordinary characters---kings and queens from distant lands, griffins, dragons, peddlers---and of grand adventures and moral tales unfolds.

Janet Evins Cooper was born in Atlanta in 1899. Upon graduation from Radcliffe College with a major in chemistry, she went to Paris to study sculpture. She subsequently lived in China and the Philippines, and in 1939 wrote and illustrated Three Proud Princesses to provide extra income for her family. Janet Cooper died in 1943, and the manuscript of the book came close to being destroyed in a fire. Her son, Robert Cooper, has resurrected the book as a tribute to her.
