Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Princess Lenore is ill from eating too many raspberry tarts. She believes that possessing the moon is the only thing that will cure her. Despite a command from the King, neither the Lord High Chamberlain nor the Royal Wizard nor the Royal Mathematician can get the moon for her. Only when the clever Court Jester consults the Princess herself is the problem solved--with characteristic Thurber wit.

Synopsis:

A reillustrated version of Thurbers tale about Princess Lenores request for the moon, with an introduction by Rosemary Thurber.

Synopsis:

This is the tale of a little princess who wanted the moon, and how she got it. Every family will relish the perplexed wise men, the enraged king, the understanding jester, and the practical way in which the little princess solved the problem that baffled all her elders.
