The princess who had no kingdom


This is the story of a princess who feels a little bit lost and different because she doesn’t have a kingdom, and so isn’t the princess of anywhere. This book tells the story of the search for her very own kingdom.


The book is in the vein of the classic fairy tale, rather than trying to adapt or subvert the fairy tale. The princess is a typical princess, who is pretty and wants to find a prince, but who is also independent, self-reliant, and has depth of character. Significantly, this book does not belittle the dreams associated with the typical princess story but adds depth and meaning to these desires.
