Princess Pourquoi

Book cover
By: (1864-1955)

Princess Pourquoi is a delightful fairy tale that takes readers on a magical journey filled with adventure, romance, and self-discovery. The story follows the young princess Pourquoi as she embarks on a quest to save her kingdom from a powerful enemy. Along the way, she encounters a charming prince, a wise wizard, and a host of fantastical creatures.

What sets Princess Pourquoi apart from other fairy tales is its strong and independent heroine. Pourquoi is not content to sit back and let others solve her problems; instead, she takes matters into her own hands and fights for what she believes in. This message of empowerment is a refreshing change from traditional fairy tales, where princesses are often portrayed as passive damsels in distress.

Margaret P. Sherwood's writing is enchanting and evocative, drawing readers into a rich and immersive world. The pacing is fast-paced, with plenty of twists and turns to keep readers on the edge of their seats. The dialogue is witty and engaging, adding humor and depth to the characters.

Overall, Princess Pourquoi is a captivating and entertaining read that will appeal to readers of all ages. It's a charming fairy tale with a modern twist, and a heroine that will inspire and enchant readers until the very last page.

Book Description:
Once upon a time, a princess was born, and a fairy cursed her with a mind: "She is a woman-child, and yet she shall think. She shall be alien to her own sex, and undesired by the other. She shall ask and it will not be given her. She shall achieve and it shall count her for naught. Men shall point the finger at her like this...and shall whisper, 'There goes the woman with brains, poor thing!" This and four other joyful feminist fairy tales make up The Princess Pourquoi. - Summary by wildemoose
