Laurel’s Marvelous Kingdom
by Monique Roy with Illustrations by Lauren Curtis
Story Book for 5 to 10 year olds
Princess Laurel and her younger sister, Princess Astrid, live peacefully and happily in a marvelous Kingdom. All is well until the wicked witch stirs up chaos and kidnaps Princess Astrid. Now, it will take more than Laurel’s tree-growing superpowers to rescue Astrid. With the help of a handsome prince, Laurel rides into the dark forest to find Astrid. But it turns out that Astrid is jealous of Laurel’s superpowers and has teamed up with the witch to reap havoc on the kingdom. Laurel must convince Astrid to abandon her evil ways and return to goodness-before Astrid and the old hag ruin everything with their mayhem. This fairy tale for early readers will enliven the imagination of children with a magical adventure. The story teaches that we are all extraordinary, and that we should appreciate and respect the uniqueness of others.
