This is a very charming book! I bought it at the request of my 19 year old daughter who has read every last fairy tale & folklore book that our local library allows us to locate over the past 12 years.
She adores this story, because the princess is quite ordinary. Brownish hair, snub nose, and can work for her happiness. What's not to like?
