The Princess Who Had No Kingdom

Ursula Jones (Author) Sarah Gibb (Illustrator)
Backorder (temporarily out of stock)


There once was a princess without a kingdom. All she had was a pony and cart and a red umbrella to keep her dry from the rain. Though she lacked worldly possessions, she made up for it in kindness, cleverness, and beauty--qualities that made all the rich princes with kingdoms want to marry her. A wise and witty modern-day fairy tale brought magically to life through Sarah Gibb's exquisite art.
