A dying king makes his son his heir--on one condition. Vain Prince Raphael must marry a woman who is his equal in beauty, intelligence, and wealth...
A search throughout the kingdom proves fruitless. Then the lovely Rosamund appears at the palace, as if by magic, and Raphael is certain he has found his wife. She is intelligent and wealthy, as well as beautiful--certainly his equal, he thinks.
Two-time Newbery Medalist Katherine Patersons critically-acclaimed original fairy tale about an arrogant prince and his search for a bride is now available in a reformatted chapter book edition. With beautiful new line art by Curtis Woodbridge, this provocative story with a contemporary social message (The New York Times Book Review) will become an instant classic for newly independent readers. An entertaining and enchanting story.
Katherine Paterson has twice won the Newbery Medal, for her young adult novels Jacob Have I Loved and Bridge to Terabithia, as well as the National Book Award, for both The Master Puppeteer and The Great Gilly Hopkins. She received the Hans Christian Andersen Award for the body of her work, and was National Ambassador for Young People's Literature. Mrs. Paterson lives in Vermont.
