In The Runaway Princess, Meg and her friends defeated a pack of princes. Now they're going to need swordplay, magic, and a whole lot of courage to find Laddy and get back home!
Obviously, magic is the only answer. One rash Thumbelina-inspired wish on a magical snail later, and the Old Tumbledown Farm is suddenly a giant's birthday present-and this giant is not willing to let go of her new toys. Can Eliza and Lavender actually work together to come up with a cunning escape plan or will Lavender be too distracted by the sudden appearance of a handsome prince?
Hold on to your socks (or Gertrude will eat them!) as author Sarah Courtauld delivers everything fans of fractured fairytales could want from magic and princes to battling giants and cantankerous goats in Buckle and Squash!
Prince Carlos Charles Charming is the youngest in a long line of Prince Charmings. But he’d much rather grow up to be a court jester. He dreams of juggling fire while riding a unicycle instead of fulfilling his princely duty. (And the word “duty” always make him think of a poop joke.)
But when a dragon is spotted in the Somewhat Enchanted woods, Carlos is going to have to figure out how to be a true Prince Charming fast. Because it’s a slay-or-get-slayed world out there. . . .
The first in a hilarious new series of illustrated chapter books, Prince Not-So Charming: Once Upon a Prank by Roy L. Hinuss introduces a reluctant Prince Charming to every kid who might worry that it’s hard to live up to the fairy tale.
Don’t miss the second book in the series, Her Royal Slyness, on-sale alongside this book!

Accompanied by their depressed goat, Gertrude, with their granny's warnings about the Black Death ringing in their ears, they head out into the forest and come face to face with an evil count who definitely does not have their best interests at heart.
