Queen Holandasia is extremely concerned about the poverty, gloominess, and oh so very dreary state of her kingdom, the so-called royal kingdom of Grottenville. All that is required is a marriage between her son, Prince William, and Princess Petunia of Petulasia, a wealthy kingdom with great tourist trade, rolling hills, and sunshine. But the prince is just not interested at all. One dark and stormy night, a mysterious girl turns up at the Grott enville palace doors. The very unimpressed royal butler, Snootenville, opens the palace doors to this bedraggled-looking stranger. Convinced the girl is a mere peasant taking a fat chance, he drags her to the royal kitchen. But finally, the girl is presented to the queen, where she announces that she is, in fact, Princess Clarabella of Muchmoridian, an even richer and more splendid kingdom than Petulasia. The queen does a quick calculation in her head and sums up the advantages of Prince William marrying this mysterious girl. Oh, how nice it would be to have new drapes, new ball gowns, a new fluff y white poodle, and satellite TV! But the queen is also afraid of being the laughingstock of all of Grottenville. Queen Holandasia proceeds to put Princess Clarabella through the most gruelling and absolutely ridiculous test of all time, the Ultimate Princess Authenticity Test, to prove the girl's royal identity. Lots of lies and deceit, laughter and giggles, sighs and slurps fill the pages of The Princess and the Pinkie Nail. Have fun with the delightful, quirky, and sometimes absolutely awful Grottenville royalty, servants, and, of course, mysterious guest. And like all good stories, learn a moral or two and even some handy hints! A great entertaining read for young and old alike. Enjoy!

About the Author:

Annemarie Elstner is a musician, teacher, and storyteller. Since the birth of her daughter, Toni-Marie, she has kept her little girl amused with silly bedtime stories. Up until the beginning of 2012, all the author's stories had been inside her head and not on paper and accessible to other mothers, fathers, and children. Her daughter sweetly said, "Mommy, you are really good. You should be a writer" And so Annemarie Elstner proceeded to take the stories from her head and write them down. The author has always been a very creative person. She sings and plays the piano and writes her own songs. She also performs in a jazz duo and teaches music classes. But when she is with her daughter, who is definitely her muse, the stories just come pouring out. Annemarie Elstner stays in a little cottage next to a mountain just outside of Johannesburg, South Africa. It is a beautiful place, peaceful and calming to the spirit, an ideal spot to allow the creative gift s within to flow. The author is currently working on her second Grottenville book and illustrations.
