Publisher's Summary

It's a well known fact that a newborn princess will often be subject to a curse, especially if her royal parents neglect to invite an important magical relative to the christening. But never has there been a curse as charming (and hilarious) as that which befalls the Light Princess. Deprived of gravity, she can't take anything, or anyone, seriously. Even worse, she's apt to blow away on the first stiff breeze!

Can even a handsome prince bring her down to Earth?

One of the most acclaimed literary fairy tales of all time, George MacDonald's profound and witty story floats into bubbling new life in this lovingly crafted full cast reading.

Clever story perfectly dramatized

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

The voice actors contributed to the overall enjoyment of the story.

What did you like best about this story?

This has been my favorite book for years. The characters are fun, the moral is powerful but not heavy-handed. George MacDonald is a treasure that is still largely undiscovered.

Have you listened to any of Cynthia Bishop and the Full Cast Family ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

The best fairytale you've never heard

a bit dated

Although the story is a bit old fashioned and very similar in style to the Brothers Grimm, I would have adored it if I had had it read to me as a child. the performance was top notch.
