Eager-to-wed Prince Nicholas narrates the story of a classic fairy tale kingdom anxious for his royal nuptials. But there's a problem ... overbearing Queen Minerva insists upon testing any girl who wants to marry her son, and not one is able to gain her approval. King Reginald loses his patience, the trusty Court Jester searches for the right bride, and an even-tempered chamber maid comforts her childhood friend, the Prince. Will Princess Cecily be up to the challenge? Or Griselda? Perhaps Princess Jillian can pass the big test. You won't believe the shocking ending to this tangled tale. An irresistible, traditional-sounding score and a witty script bring the satisfying story to life. Be sure to say "I do" to this traditional tale told anew. Recommended for grades 4 and up.
