The Light Princess: Annotated (Paperback)
The Light Princess by George MacDonald
Once upon a time, a witch cursed a childish princess without gravity. She never felt the weight, neither physical nor emotional; She could never walk the ground and could never cry for anything. Instead, she floated and laughed. But her favorite place to be was on a lake outside the castle, where she spent hours swimming. The witch (who also happened to be the princess's aunt) was looking forward to the girl's sixteenth birthday - if the princess didn't find her gravity by then, the curse would be permanent and the kingdom would be under the witch's control. Desperate, the king and queen, helped by their wise men, search for a solution to bring the princess back to the ground. Believing that the princess should "fall in love", the king organizes a suitor contest. But little does he know that she has already met a prince, even if he doesn't want to be a prince anymore Adapted by Lila Rose Kaplan and Mike Pettry from George MacDonald's Scottish fairy tale, The Light Princess is a whimsical adventure for the whole family.
