Read full description of the books:
I'm a sucker for Vande Velde, will read and reread just about anything by her. I think I finally realized one reason why: she's got a similar magic touch with words to James Thurber, for example in Many Moons.
"Once upon a time, before the inventions of waterbeds or air mattresses or Craftomatic adjustable beds, there lived a prince named Royal. Because Prince Royal had such a royal name, great things were expected of him...."
Don't underestimate children's ability to see the joke there; they know that the parents, the King and Queen, chose the Prince's name.
And I bet it's pretty easy for you to guess which tale is about to be fractured. If you're stumped:
"... and when it was time for him to marry, everyone agreed that he needed to find absolutely the most perfect princess to be his wife."
If you still can't guess the tale, you might not like this book. Everyone else will, though.
