Princess Anna, adopted by the king in her infancy and now a young woman, is intrigued by the world that lies beyond the lush, green hills of the kingdom. When she seeks to satisfy her curiosity, she falls under the influence of the Lowlanders and begins to resemble their haggard style. Never to let a child slip away that easily, the king follows her, and trades his life for hers in order to provide her with a way back home. Despite the king's sacrifice, the choice to return home is ultimately Anna's to make.
The underlying truth is unmistakable as Max has crafted this powerful story that will speak to all of the King's children and implore them to follow the path that leads home. Recommended for ages 5 and up.
A curious princess, a dutiful knight and a king willing to make the ultimate sacrifice for his daughter all play a key role in Lucado's original fairy tale about finding-and straying from-the right path. Life within the protective castle walls and gardens is all Princess Anna has ever known. But she's heard tales of the free and easy life enjoyed by the Lowlanders who play in the meadow, splash in the creek and live in the looming dark forest. Anna wants to know what it's like on the other side of the kingdom, so to speak. One day she gets her wish when disguised, evil Lowlanders Ima, Gunnah and Getcha, who are servants of wicked Olbaid, tempt Anna into exploring the forest where she is soon held captive. But the king will risk all to save her in a dramatic, but nonviolent, showdown with Olbaid. Though Lucado does not mention Scripture or God, his themes of temptation and sacrifice as well as his archetypes and symbolism are clear discussion starters for those in the Christian faith (and may be applied more broadly, too). Elwell's shadowy watercolors evoke an elegant, medieval era and his warty, troll-like Lowlanders are a memorable bunch. Ages 5-8 (Oct.) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
