Maiden & Princess by Daniel Haack & Isabel Galupo, & illustrated Becca Human
In this modern fairy tale, a strong, brave maiden is invited to attend the prince's royal ball, but at the dance, she ends up finding true love in a most surprising place.
"The prince is smart and strong,"
she confided in her mother.
"But if I'm being honest,
I see him as a brother."
Her mother said, "Just go!
And have a bit of fun.
The prince might not be right,
but you could meet the one."
Once in a faraway kingdom, a strong, brave maiden is invited to attend the prince's royal ball, but she's not as excited to go as everyone else. After her mother convinces her to make an appearance, she makes a huge impression on everyone present, from the villagers to the king and queen, but she ends up finding true love in a most surprising place.
