This is Two-Eyes.

She has two wicked sisters.

They make fun of her for having only two eyes and wonder why she can't look normal like they do.

But Two-Eyes will show them.

She's got a fairy godmother, a magic goat, and a handsome knight to help her outsmart her terrible sisters and escape far, far away.

With a spirited text that's fun to read out loud and humorous illustrations, this retelling of a Brothers Grimm tale is sure to become a new folk classic.
