Very good story. Engaging, clean, and with an excellent message.


In the kingdom of Phantasmorania, in the capital city of Phanff, reign the King Hulderbrand and the Queen Rodehesia, with their seven daughters. All of the princesses are very beautiful, in the traditional way of princesses, except the youngest, Princess Amy. At her christening, one of Princess Amy's fairy godmothers gives her the gift of being ordinary. This is the story of how a princess becomes a kitchen maid and finds the love of a king, in spite of her ordinariness.


Very high morals. No evil characters.

Spiritual Content

Not much beyond the mention of cathedrals and archbishops.

As far as magic is concerned, the only thing we see is the bestowing of gifts from the various fairy godmothers on the Princess Amy.


There is mention of the possiblity of hiring a dragon to lay waste to the Kingdom of Phantasmorania, in order to get a prince to slay it in hopes of marrying off Princess Amy. This plan is never put into action.

Drug and Alcohol Content

There is mention of some empty wine glasses, but that's about it.

Sexual Content

Just one kiss, done in complete innocence.

Crude or Profane Language or Content

Absolutely none.


A wonderful story about a unique princess. The story shows the reader that you do not have to be gorgeous to gain the heart of a king...it's all about the beauty within. All done in a lighthearted and fun way, it's a story to be loved by young and old.
