Robert Munsch, illustrated by Michael Martchenko

Princess Elizabeth is set to marry Prince Ronald. But when a dragon attacks the castle and kidnaps Ronald, Elizabeth must do what she can to save her prince. A delightful story that proves you can be a princess and a hero — and that shows you don't need a prince to be either.
