This was a traditional fairy tale story from Japan. It was a bit of a puzzle to for both the reader and the other characters to figure out why the princess was growing so big. Though the story was classic the artwork was bold and geometric. The illustrations combined the modern with the traditional. ( )

A simple fairy tale meets bold, geometric art in this fresh, witty story from Japan.

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.
