A hilarious rhyming story for princesses who are definitely NOT princessy.
‘The trouble with most fairy tales is that they sound the same.
There’s usually a problem and a dragon who’s to blame.
And sometimes there’s a tower with a princess stuck inside,
a kingly dad and lots of knights who often want a bride.
But though this is a fairy tale with all the usual team,
If you read on you’ll find that things aren’t always what they seem…’
When a truly terrifying sound wakes everyone up, clever Princess Daisy soon figures out the problem, but her father, the King, just won’t listen how can a princess defeat a dragon? Then when the knights who come to the rescue prove to be a big bunch of nincompoop scaredy-cats, things start to look rather bad. Until . . . hang on . . . who’s that mystery knight in the dragon’s den? Why, it’s Plucky Princess Daisy . . . OF COURSE!
A feminist bedtime picture book that’s just perfect for princesses and princes who don’t need rescuing.
