The Princess Who Had No Kingdom
CILIP Kate Greenaway Children's Book Award
Once there was a princess who had no kingdom. All she had was a pony and cart, and a red umbrella to keep her dry from the rain. What she lacked in wordly possessions though, she made up for in kindness, cleverness and beauty - qualities that made all the rich princes with kingdoms to spare want to marry her. But what is a kingdom without love?
A wise and witty modern-day fairytale from Roald Dahl Funny Prize-winning author, Ursula Jones. Brought magically to life through Sarah Gibb's exquisite art.
