This review is from: The Ordinary Princess (Paperback)
I was given this book when I was about 9 and was immediately captivated by its charm and humour. It tells the story of Princess Amethyst whose christening is marred by the arrival of a bad tempered fairy (late because she was held up in traffic) who gives the gift of ordinariness. I bought it for my god daughter this Christmas and had to re-read it (I don't know how but my copy was mislaid) and was taken back to how marvellous this charming tale is.
I would heartily recommend this to anyone who wants to get a book full of true humour and, sounds daft, but sunshine. This is a wonderful fairy story and I must say that reading it as an adult has reconfirmed my love of it.
