With sumptuous artwork, Jane Ray tells an original fairy tale of a humble princess whose love for nature’s beauty restores a kingdom.
Once there was a kingdom full of laughter, happiness, trees, and birdsong. But when the queen dies, the land becomes quiet and barren, and everyone is filled with sadness. What will make the kingdom bloom again? Can Serenity, the youngest of three princesses, bring hope and life back to her kingdom with a single apple pip — a precious seed left to her by her mother? This original fairy tale is brought to life and exquisitely illustrated by the internationally renowned Jane Ray.
Jane Ray has illustrated numerous award-winning children’s books, including LUGALBANDA: THE BOY WHO GOT CAUGHT UP IN A WAR by Kathy Henderson and SHAKESPEARE'S ROMEO AND JULIET by Michael Rosen. She lives in London.
