SummaryAdd a Summary
In traditional fairy tales, princesses usually need to be rescued from something. They don’t have horses or swords, and they are afraid of dragons and many other things. They get locked up in towers, put to sleep under evil spells, or kidnapped.
Not this princess! The feisty damsel featured in this story (who is never given a name) has already rescued a prince or two. (To be specific, she’s rescued a prince who’d been turned into a frog, a prince locked in a deep dungeon, another buried in a cave in a dark forest, and yet another who’d been kidnapped by an ogre.)
Well, why can’t a princess be brave and save someone?
Riding a beautiful horse, wearing custom-made armor and toting a big purse supplied with all sorts of “secret weapons”, our princess is more than a match for any mean-spirited dragon, troll, evil spell or prince who crosses her path. She doesn’t hesitate to ask for directions, either. (Would a prince do that?) And that’s a good thing, because she is about to meet her toughest challenge yet: a prince trapped in an ogress’s jewelry box!
A jewelry box? Not a cave or a dungeon … but a box?
Yes, a jewelry box! And it’s fortunate that our princess is here now to rescue this prince, because he’s just about to faint with fear!
Can she do it?
Well, readers can probably guess the end of this entertaining, amusing tale, which proves that girls too, can be heroes (or heroines)!
