Description

Queen Sophie rules a small, happy kingdom of farmers, but she herself isn't happy. Nobody ever comes to her with a problem, and she is bored to tears . . . until she spots an ad for the Royal College of Beauty correspondence course. Soon she is memorizing directions and practicing her lessons in a frenzy. She starts writing proclamations, demanding that her subjects come to the castle so that she can cut and curl and color their hair. Even the sheep must be coiffed. It's not long before Sophie finds herself facing an angry--though very stylish!--mob.

A playful, funny fairy tale with a decidedly contemporary sensibility, The Queen of Style has all the vibrancy and wit we've come to expect from this husband-and-wife team, the creators of the New York Times bestselling Snowmen at Night.
