She prefers good books to good looks and keeps both the royal accounts and the castle drawbridge in working order.When her greedy stepmother and stepsister scheme to spend the royal treasury and her father, the king, falls ill, Rosamond must set out in search of the one thing that can cure him -- the healing waters found in the magical well at the end of the world. In the spirit of The Talking Eggs, award-winning author Robert San Souci has once again created a feisty heroine whose generosity and courage save the day combined with Rebecca Walsh's vibrant paintings." A delightful re-telling of a classic fairy tale' The King of Colchester's Daughters' which the Opies noted was already traditional by Elizibethan times, and which was included in a variant Norwegian version in Andrew Lang's 'The Red Fairy Book.' SIGNED by the author, Robert D. San Souci, on the title page. Fine in fine dust jacket (a new copy.). Bookseller Inventory # 30675
