Once upon a time, a king and queen discover among their flowers a lovely and very tiny princess perched on a leaf. Overjoyed to have found a daughter, they fashion for her a single-feather bed and watch as she grows large enough to sleep in a ring box, a teacup, and a teddy bear’s lap. But still the princess keeps growing and growing, until her head pokes through the top of even the tallest tower. Can the king figure out how to break the spell before the enormous tower crumbles and falls? With bright, stylized artwork and a vertical foldout befitting a very big princess, this whimsical follow-up to The Tiny King is sure to be a big hit.
