When Princess Nona has simply had enough of being a princess, she leaves her parents' palace and takes her destiny into her own hands, searching for a way of life that's more to her liking. After all, being a fairy tale princess isn't easy. She can't make mistakes, yawn, or scratch her nose. She must be discreet, play the harpsichord, smile all the time, and wait for her Prince Charming to arrive. Children will follow along on Nona's adventures as she tries new things and meets new people as she journeys toward finally figuring out what makes her happy. This story written in verse emphasizes values such as equality, the importance of being oneself, and having the courage to follow one's dreams.
