Ten Big Toes and a Prince's Nose by Nancy Gow


Ten Big Toes and a Prince's Nose by Nancy Gow

This title is suitable for children aged 4 to 7 years old. Poor princess! When suitors saw her feet, they ran for the door before even getting to know her. And in another land, far away, a kind prince had a similar problem: although he was funny and kind, he had a huge nose that scared off every maiden he met. But a serendipitous meeting on a ski slope teaches this adorably flawed (and well-matched) pair an important lesson: 'I am what I am and that's all right with me. I don't have to be different, I just have to be. I don't want to be somebody else. No sir-ree! I am what I am and that's all right with me.' With whimsical surprises, lavish art and a fantastical story about love and acceptance, this picture book will delight readers of any age.
