Princess Harriet Hamsterbone is cursed with pricking her finger on a "hamster" wheel and falling into a deep sleep at age 12, by the wicked fairy god rat, Ratshade. When Princess Harriet turns 10 she learns about the curse. Brave Harriet sees the positive side of Ratshade’s proclamation, guaranteeing she's invincible until age 12. She joyfully slays ogres, cliff dives, and rides wherever she desires on her pet quail Mumfrey. What will happen when Princess Harriet turns 12 and her evil foe Ratsdale reappears?  (Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Award Program, 2017)
