Super fun!!

This is a wonderful whimsical story about a young man who finds that he shares his love of reading with a lonely princess he watches through his telescope. Supporting characters include a power hungry but irresponsible tooth fairy, a kindly troll who lives in a rainbow cave, and the classic evil stepmother. Told with a great sense of humor and liberal doses of whimsy, this story is a cute crowd please, and also includes plenty of girl power!
