This princess may be lost, but she's not helpless. She told her parents she'd rather be swept overboard in a storm at sea than marry a prince she didn't choose for herself-and that's exactly what happened!

Yet it wasn't a disaster. For with a little luck, a lot of pluck and a special way with words, the princess turns this accident into a wildly entertaining adventure for herself and the prince of her dreams.

This imaginative and original tale from award-winning storyteller and author Rafe Martin and New York Times Best Illustrated winner Kim Root is sure to please adventure seekers and romantics.
