The Persnickety Princess (Tales from Upon A. Time – 1) by Falcon Storm
High up in the tallest tower of the purplest castle in the Kingdom by the Sea, Princess Lavender awaits rescue. Desperate as she may be, only the most dashing, well-dressed, properly mannered prince will do. Oh, and he must stand exactly four and three-quarters inches taller than her. A princess has got to have standards, after all.
When, finally, one such prince comes to her castle–not to rescue her, but her younger sister–Lavender refuses to be ignored. Instead of waiting for the next suitor to come along, she devises a plan to put herself in danger, thus forcing the upstart prince to forget her sister and rescue her instead.
Well accustomed to getting her way, there is only one thing, unfortunately, that this princess can’t control–her luck. When her plans go awry, putting her in very real danger, will she allow the prince to rescue her as he sees fit? Will he even want to try?
And will anyone be able to find a way to rescue Lavender from her persnickety ways once and for all? Find out in this comedic tale of princes, dragons, and dreams that just may come true.
Bard Upon A. Time has been caught stealing and to save himself he starts telling the story of The Persnickety Princess. Princess Lavender is a bit demanding and insists on having the perfect prince rescue her. But when he does show up she learns that he is actually there to save her sister Petunia. Lavender decides that if she can just get him to save her then everything will be perfect. But things are not going to go her way. Lavender finds herself in one mess after another and constantly being saved by the squire. Will she finally find herself and her happiness?
This is a great story for kids. There is a lot to discuss with them along with them about being happy and having realistic goals. Also, you don’t have to rely on someone else to save you. I love how the harder Lavender tried to force people into her plans the worst they blew up on her.
Lavender was over the top with her antics and I was constantly laughing. This is a wonderful story and I can’t wait to see what Upon A. Time comes up with for his next story.
