Princess to the Rescue

Princess to the Rescue


Written by Claudia Souza and Illustrated by Christelle Ammirati


Why can't it be perfectly normal for a princess to save a prince?!

Once upon a time, there was a princess who saved princes. This particular princess is not afraid, she is not weak, and she does not need to be rescued. In fact, she is the one who does the rescuing – she has saved princes who’ve been turned into frogs, who’ve been kidnapped by ogres, who were locked in terrible dungeons, and who were lost in scary forests.

Now the princess is faced with her toughest rescue yet, as she tries to save a prince who has been captured by a wicked ogress. This is a charming princess who turns centuries of storytelling on its head, not by using her charms, but by using her intelligence. She defies traditional expectations as she saves the day and wins the prince’s heart.

About the Illustrator
