Publisher Comments:

Cornelia Funke, author of the international best-seller THE THIEF LORD, makes her brilliant debut as a picture-book writer with this winning tale of a young princess's adventure!

Violet is a young princess who wishes she could show the world that she is just as brave and strong as her brothers. But her strict father insists that she get married, and her brothers only mock her when she wants to be included in their fun. So Violet decides to use her intelligence and bravery to show everyone--once and for all--what she's made of. Disguising herself as a boy, Violet takes part in a knights' jousting tournament. When she wins the contest, she reveals her true identity--and wins the prize of freedom!

Synopsis:

Princess Viola aims to trade her fiesty moves for frilly princess skills in this picture book that zip-zup-zooms!

But Violetta’s father, the King, insists that she act ladylike and get married! He even arranges a knights’ jousting contest to find Violetta a suitor. The feisty princess will not stand for this! So Violetta decides to disguise herself as a boy and take part in that very contest. Every night, she secretly practices to become the most nimble knight in the land. But when the big day arrives, will Violetta be able to prove — once and for all — what she’s truly made of?
