9780007109463: Spinning Tales Book 1: The Fairy's Mistake/The Princess Test

Two hilarious fairy tales with a difference by the author of ELLA ENCHANTED – just spin the book round to read a different story! Here, The Good and Bad Sisters and The Princess and the Pea get a modern spin…

In The Fairy’s Mistake, when a fairy gives gentle Rosella the gift of gemstones that fall from her lips every time she speaks, her life looks rosy. But a greedy Prince insists on marrying her and makes her speak endlessly. Her horrible twin sister Myrtle meanwhile has been cursed with a series of frogs, bugs and snakes issuing from her mouth. So how come she can now get everything she wants?

And in The Princess Test, Lorelei is terribly sweet, but she can’t do a thing for herself except bruise horribly and embroider exquisitely. Prince Nicholas’s parents are conducting a series of impossible tests on Perfect Princesses in order to find a wife for their son. Will Lorelei pass all the tests and save the Prince from the lip-licking Crocodile Princess?
