This was a fun little read aloud for our family (boy age 9, girls ages 8 and 6). I decided on this book based on some good 5 star reviews on Amazon. It was a shorter book (128 pages) so that appealed to me. I was worried that my nine year old son might not like a book about a princess, but he did because it was not a girly type of book. The author tells the story of a princess who was born and given the gift of "ordinary". It seemed that she may never get married because she was not extraordinary in any way. In a cute little series of adventures and twists she does find a special someone who turns out to be exceptionally special in the end. Fun story for the whole family.
