All across the kingdom, excitement is running high: a seventh princess, always the luckiest and most beautiful of all, has just been born to good King Huldebrand and Her Majesty Queen Rodehesia. When the christening day arrives, Her Serene and Royal Highness Princess Amethyst Alexandra Augusta Araminta Adelaide Aurelia Anne is showered with the most extravagant, marvelous presents imaginable - until her last, most powerful fairy godmother proclaims, "You shall be Ordinary!"


This is an old favourite, and I was pleased to have it in my possession again. I read it on a Sunday afternoon, and enjoyable it was. A twist on the usual fairy tale, but aware of all the conventions and cliches. Also, some fun with all the names.
