WONDERFUL JOB PAPER MOON KIDS!!!!!
AN AMAZING ACCOMPLISHMENT!!!
Along with Wit, Charm, Health, and Courage, Princess Amy of Phantasmorania receives a special fairy christening gift: Ordinariness. Unlike her six beautiful sisters, she has brown hair and freckles, and would rather have adventures than play the harp, embroider tapestries . . . or become a Queen. When her royal parents try to marry her off, Amy runs away and, because she's so ordinary, easily becomes the fourteenth assistant kitchen maid at a neighboring palace. And there, much to everyone's surprise, she meets a prince just as ordinary (and special) as she is!
There is nothing ordinary about M M Kaye's Princess or this story and I can't wait to watch the our Paper Moon kids bring this story to life for their audience!
