It’s like The King’s Speech, but for kids.
When it’s save-the-kingdom time, a nameless princess has to use her whole toolbox. . .
Can she finally use the one tool that’s never worked. . .her quiet voice?
Organizing a party is hard! When you’re a behind-the-scenes inventor princess, it’s even worse.
But when your royal parents fall ill with croquet fever? All they want to do is play croquet!
The pressure’s on!
Then your royal aunt burns down the castle. . .
And your fairy godmother’s booby-trapped gift means. . .
No one hears you at all!
What’s a princess to do?
Whether it’s speaking up at a feast, or reading a map in a strange kingdom, SEVEN KINGDOMS FAIRY TALES are all about finding more magic in your life.
One lucky child gets the perfect leadership gift.
If only the fairies would remember the training wheels!
