The Lovereading4Kids comment
This entertaining and enormously funny story tells how a modern day Cinderella may find her Prince Charming. When the Royal Palace holds a competition to find a perfect princess, farm girl Molly seizes her chance. Luckily, she has long blonde hear and has managed to get hold of some suitable clothes but will she pass all the tests of a princess? Can she detect the pea under the mattress? And how will she manage the spinning wheel? Molly is a resourceful girl and does find her way through to the final moment of selection. But does she really want Prince Charming anyway? Molly’s predicament is fun as well as raising important issues about the value of fame and wealth.
