Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When beautiful Princess Miserella, Plain Jane, and a fairy fall under a sleeping spell, a prince undoes the spell in a surprising way.

Synopsis:

Plain Jane has a heart of gold — but her face is as homely as her nose is long. Princess Miserella, on the other hand, is a beautiful princess with a heart of stone. In this droll twist on the classic fairytale, the kiss-bestowing prince learns that beauty is indeed only skin deep.

"Yolen pokes fun at the patterned Sleeping-princess story in a tale that's written with brisk simplicity and humor...it is amusing, it has plenty of action, and it's easy to read". — Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books "A light, bright twist on the romantic tale". — Kirkus Reviews
