you live in a dumpy, small kingdom where, even though you're the princess,
you have to do the castle laundry. What's the point in being a princess?
And worse yet, you don't have beautiful flowing golden hair and sparkling
sapphire eyes, and you're not tall and willowy-you're short, with a chubby
round face. You see what kind of excitement Jennifer, the princess,
lacks, don't you? Now imagine a handsome prince, with golden hair
and deep blue eyes, dressed in white satin, astride a gleaming white horse.
You'd help him too, wouldn't you? That's Jennifer's first mistake-because
Alexander, the prince, although supremely handsome, is also supremely stupid.
So stupid, in fact, that he convinces Jennifer-who's blinded by his beauty-to
go through the gate and into the walled-off enchanted forest, where he
promptly manages to anger a witch and be put into a sound sleep-forever,
unless Jennifer can help him. Fortunately Jennifer finds some help in Norman,
who is about her age, and is a new sorcerer. Will Jennifer and Norman get
eaten by a giant? Can they save Alexander from the evil witch Malveenya?
Do they want to? Read and find out! (Stacy Charlesbois, Adult
