A Princessy tale

The Princess Who Had No Kingdom is a delightful fairy tale written by Ursula Jones and beautifully illustrated by Sarah Gibb using a combination of silhouettes and a colourful painterly style.
Here is a wise tale about a princess who had no kingdom and whose only possessions were a pony and cart, and a red umbrella to keep her dry from the rain. What the princess lacked in wordly possessions, she made up for in kindness, cleverness and beauty - qualities that made all of the rich princes with kingdoms of their own to ask for her hand in marriage. But what is a kingdom without love?
