Product Details


“A dry-humored modern fairy tale…Damant’s bright and cheery illustrations bring a Mary Blair–meets-Pixar aesthetic to the pages, which is ideally suited to the way Snyder blends contemporary and classic details.”–Publishers Weekly

“A pint-sized king’s boredom and his easy access to a wizard result in a series of messes…excitement personified…Damant’s illustrations portray a diverse cast.”–Kirkus Reviews

“Enjoyment here…filled with Damant’s big and often pink- or purple-hued digitally created artwork, which has a zany, retro feel. These work in happy conjunction with Synder’s accessible, comical text. Kids who like a little chaos in their fairy tales will enjoy this offering, and maybe learn a lesson about not always demanding more.”–Booklist

“In this modern-day fairy-tale, a dark-skinned king orders his wizard to conjure up a dragon to add a little fun to his picture-perfect kingdom…. Vibrant, cartoon digital artwork is appealing.” — SLJ Reviews
