Princess 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 She begs to have her wish rescinded, but will her fairy godmother allow her to go back to her former self?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 Young Reader's Choice Awards, 2005-2006)
