Young Queens #3: The Curious Crown

Megan Hess

Best-selling author Megan Hess shines in The Curious Crown, a glorious original fairy tale about a legendary crown, and the girl who needs to borrow it for a festive miracle …

As the snow swirls on Christmas Eve, young Ella Rose gazes out the palace window and sees a boy whose own tree is bare. Her family’s Christmas tree is laden with baubles, and she wants to share some with him – but when she goes to leave, it’s freezing outside, and the weather is fierce.
However, Ella Rose dreams of being fierce, too. In her palace, under lock and key, is a magical crown that once belonged to her mother. If she borrows it – just for one night – will it give her the courage, strength and creativity she needs to help this boy?

The third wondrous picture book in Megan Hess’s Young Queens Collection, a series of original fairytales about young girls coming into their own power. Every girl has a queen inside!

A sparkling, festive fairy tale about compassion and inner strength.
