|aWhen a fairy godmouse forces Whiskerella to wear glass slippers and attend balls night after night in search of a happily ever after, it's up to Princess Harriet Hamsterbone to break the spell and save the day.
A funny, feminist twist on the Cinderella fairy tale for fans of fractured fairy talesPrincess Harriet Hamsterbone is not the kind of princess who enjoys fancy dresses or extravagant parties. Cliff-diving, fractions, and whacking people with swords are more her thing. So when she's forced to attend a boring ball in honor of a visiting ambassador, Harriet is less than thrilled--until a bewitchingly beautiful stranger arrives. Who is she? And where did she come from? The mystery leads to a not-so-wicked stepsister, an incontinent lizard, and a fairy's spell that's really more of a curse. Luckily, Harriet knows a thing or two about curses... Smart, funny, and filled with swashbuckling adventure, book five in the critically acclaimed Hamster Princess series is a hilariously re-told fairy tale for the modern age.
