The Ordinary Princess
  • The Ordinary Princess

  • Once upon a time, there was the most beautiful, extraordinary princess. At least, until the day of her christening, when a grumpy fairy placed a spell to make her ORDINARY!

    Princess Amethyst Alexandra Araminta Adelaide Aurelia Anne (also known as Princess Amy) doesn't mind being ordinary- she gets to play in the woods, and run about to her heart's content!

    But when she realises that her parents intend for her to marry a dreary prince, she must take matters into her own hands.

    She may have been born ordinary, but Princess Amy's adventures are nothing but!
