Rose’s birth shocks the entire kingdom of Couscous. Their new little princess
is quite homely, not the traditional beautiful princess found in fairy
tales. Rose accepts her looks until the handsome Prince Parsley appears.
Her wish to be beautiful to attract his attention is granted by her fairy
godmother. But Rose soon discovers, much to her chagrin, the handsome Prince
Parsley is quite lacking in many other important qualities. She begs to
have her wish rescinded, but will her fairy godmother allow her to go back
to her former self? (Jean B. Bellavance for Pennsylvania
