The Goose Girl Band 13/Topaz by Livi Michael


The Goose Girl Band 13/Topaz by Livi Michael

This hilarious retelling of a traditional Hans Christian Anderson tale tells of mistaken identities as a kind, humble princess swaps places with her grumpy, unpleasant maid, with some very funny consequences! Who'll end up marrying the prince, and who will end up the goose girl, and how will the magic horse help? Topaz/Band 13 books offer longer and more demanding reads for children to investigate and evaluate. Text type: A traditional tale Curriculum links: English: fairy stories, myths and legends
