About this title


Cursed at birth by an evil lord, a princess uses intelligence, cleverness, and generosity to outwit the lord and undo the spell

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3-An original fairy tale with an intriguing premise: "...the Lord of Night...put a curse on the princess when she was born, that if ever she wanted something she couldn't have, the kingdom would fall into ruin and the king and queen would die." When the princess awakens on her 13th birthday, she knows she wants something- she doesn't know what, but is determined to find it. On her journey, she gives away her beloved animal companions to people in need, and finally meets a very small old man who gives her a magical ring. When she returns home, the Lord of Night tells her he knows she wants something she doesn't have. She tells him that she wants to be free of his curse, and uses the ring to get her wish. With its classic fairy-tale theme of triumph over misfortune, this is a cleverly plotted story with an interesting mix of folkloric elements. The formal language is elegant and vivid. The romantic watercolor-and-colored-pencil illustrations are lush yet delicate, with clear, rich colors and lovely, flowing lines. A beautiful princess and a fearsome Lord of Night are dramatically placed in a Renaissance setting. Most children will love this long picture book; it would make a great classroom read aloud.
