"Did you ever wish to be a princess? Have you ever wanted to wear a pretty pink gown, sing to your forest animal friends, and attend a fancy fairy-tale ball? Then meet Beatrice--she's a princess from the Middle Ages. Beatrice is out to set the record straight. Pink gown? More like itchy wool! Sing to animals? Think archery and horseback riding instead. Beatrice's life is no fairy tale, but she will show you that fact can sometimes be more fascinating than fantasy. Find out what being a princess was really all about in this humorous, brightly illustrated book"-- Provided by publisher.
