The Ordinary Princess by M. M. Kaye has been charming readers for several decades now. I received an alert today that the ebook price has dropped to $3.59 from $5.12. I own it in hardcover, but it's always nice to have a more portable electronic version. I also appreciate that the publisher managed to not pretty up Amy too much on the cover. Always nice when the cover reflects the actual book contents, yes?
Along with Wit, Charm, Health, and Courage, Princess Amy of Phantasmorania receives a special fairy christening gift: Ordinariness. Unlike her six beautiful sisters, she has brown hair and freckles, and would rather have adventures than play the harp, embroider tapestries . . . or become a Queen. When her royal parents try to marry her off, Amy runs away and, because she's so ordinary, easily becomes the fourteenth assistant kitchen maid at a neighboring palace. And there . . . much to everyone's surprise . . . she meets a prince just as ordinary (and special) as she is!
