Publisher's Summary

Along with Wit, Charm, Health, and Courage, Princess Amy of Phantasmorania receives a special fairy christening gift: Ordinariness. Unlike her six beautiful sisters, she has brown hair and freckles, and would rather have adventures than play the harp, embroider tapestries . . . or become a Queen. When her royal parents try to marry her off, Amy runs away and, because she's so ordinary, easily becomes the 14th assistant kitchen maid at a neighboring palace. And there…much to everyone's surprise…she meets a prince just as ordinary (and special) as she is!

My 8 year old listened to this book - it seemed to be riveting for her. She didn't want to put it down and listened to it constantly, through dinner, on our walk, riding in the car, and even lying in bed before lights out. Only books like The Secret Garden, A Wind in the Door, and Anne of Green Gables have elicited a similar listening intensity for her. My daughter is eagerly awaiting the next children's book from M.M. Kaye. Narration is vital for children's audiobook versions and from listening to this preview I immediately appreciated Simone Tetrault's lyrical voice and pleasant reading pace.

I love this story. It is a beautiful telling of what would happen if a princess was an ordinary girl. I liked listening to the story but the hard copy version has illustrations that really make the book.
