In this book of short stories, Piret Raud has taken on the dream of many little girls: princesses. However, these are no ordinary princesses that live in ordinary castles. Instead, one finds a backwards-princess who does everything the wrong way around, a barking princess who gets bitten by a flea, as well as Princess Balloon, who organizes a ball for her balls, and Princess Mummy, who is afraid of mice. The book isn’t short of a couple of evil dragons and a few nice princes; not to mention heaps of beautiful dresses, hats, and rose bushes.
