Princess Jill excels at jousting, fencing, skating and long-distance spitting. Her brother, King Jack, loves baking and spending time with Little Bo Peep and her sheep. So what's a princess to do when she receives a mysterious letter from the land of Grimm? Take up ballroom dancing? Not Princess Jill. All alone, with only her wits to guide her, Jill sets off to rescue the citizens of Grimm. Along the way she makes many odd new friends and discovers the value of listening to your mother.
"An excellent read-aloud choice...Bar-el's sense of humour will definitely appeal to children aged 8-11...Humour and characters will [also] appeal to older readers, thus making it an excellent high-interest book. Recommended."
