In a land far, far away . . .
A boy with magical powers to win Princess Charming's heart. A fairy who likes turning humans into toads. A true love forbidden by the King.
A world of fairies and magic -- what could be more perfect than that? But is it perfect enough to help a simple farm boy marry a beautiful princess? And if an unruly fairy turns a maiden into a toad, how does she turn herself back? And can a fairy -- even a helpful one -- change a stubborn king's law?
Welcome to a land where Princess Charming saves the day, the prince must kiss the toads, and nothing is as it seems!
Now in one volume, three hilarious chances at happily-ever-after from the Newbery Honor author of Ella Enchanted:
Cinderellis and the Glass Hill
For Biddle's Sake
The Fairy's Return
