A paper princess once lived happily with the little girl who made her. But now the girl has grown up and left the princess under a paperweight. It's safe there, but the paper princess longs to grow and change, too. The princess must choose: safety or unknown adventure? Though a cat's sharp claws, a baby's sticky mouth, and blustering winter storms threaten the princess as she makes her way, she never gives up hope. Finally, carried on a cloud of butterfly wings, she journeys to a summery land, where a little girl understands her anew with a tender love. Kleven's luminous collage art offers perfect visual storytelling for this many-faceted, transforming journey.
