Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Princess Wisdom, known as Dizzy, longs for a life of adventure far beyond the staid old kingdom of Montagne.   Tips, a soldier, longs to keep his true life secret from his family.   Fortitude, an orphaned maid, longs only for Tips.   These three passionate souls might just attain their dreams while preserving Montagne from certain destruction – if only they can tolerate each other long enough to come up with a plan. Tough to save the world when you cant even be in the same room together.   Magic, cunning and one very special cat join forces in this hilarious, extraordinary tale by the author ofDairy QueenandPrincess Ben. An incredibly creative tale told with diaries, memoirs, encyclopedia entries, letters, biographies, even a stage play, all woven together into a grand adventure.

Synopsis:

In her third book about the delightful Woodcutter sisters, Alethea Kontis masterfully weaves "The Wild Swans," "The Goose Girl," and a few other fine-feathered fairy tales into a magical, romantic companion novel to Enchanted and Hero.
