From the author of Secret Letters From 0 to 10 and A Book of Coupons, come these two silly, modern fairy tales about two different princesses. Princess Yona is a lonely little girl who wants nothing more than to have a plain old ordinary life. Princess Emma, meanwhile, is searching for her own unique version of Prince Charming because it's time for her to marry. Neither girl is happy with her royal situation, but, in classic Morgenstern fashion, both of these spunky princesses face their dilemmas with determination and a sense of humor.

Illustrated by Serge Bloch
