The Princess and the Peabodys

Written by Betty G. Birney

The Princess and the Peabodys Synopsis

Once upon a time, in the magical land of Pine Glen, California, lived a girl named Casey Peabody - that's me - and her family. We still live in Pine Glen, which isn't really magical, or at least it wasn't until the princess came. Even then, the magic that happened was a lot different than what you read about in fairy tales. Tomboy Casey Peabody has her life turned upside-down when Princess Eglantine Eleanor Annalisa Ambrosia de Bercy magically appears in her living room. Problem is, her hapless wizard Alaric can't find a spell to magic her back to where she came from - much to Casey's horror. Princess Egg is now living with them, sharing Casey's bedroom and even stealing the affections of Casey's dog. But life is about to get worse when Egg starts school. Aside from her dodgy fashion sense, she is arrogant, proud and has a habit of calling people peasants. Will Casey be able to stop this royal pain in the neck from turning her into the laughing stock of the school? A funny, delightful, touching new novel from Betty G. Birney.
